Bacon + Chorizo Breakfast Pasta

An idea popped in my head and I couldn't get it to shake. I quickly glanced at my phone as I texted her, “Would you eat chorizo in pasta for breakfast?” I’d meant to say to say brunch but the haste of my day caused me to be in a rush. “Oh, well I thought”, she’ll get the point. She responded almost immediately, “that’s kind of heavy for breakfast but I’d do it for brunch; especially if I was invitin’ people.” I smiled as that was exactly what I was goin’ for.

Brunch it’d come to be my favorite meal of the weekend. The meal I spent much of my blogon. Well, what kind of Dallasite would I be if I wasn’t brunch obsessed I figured. I’d give myself a pass this one time that I was cookin’ a brunch style meal for dinner. Everyone else could just deal.


I grabbed the Ragu HomestylePasta sauce off the shelf and made quick work of fryin’ a few eggs. It’d come to be my narrative I suppose; barefoot in the kitchen every smell and action seared in my brain. Seared in my brain waitin’ to told

There I stood barefoot in the kitchen. 



Ingredients:
Angel Hair Pasta
1 cup of Chorizo
4 chopped slices of bacon
Salt/Pepper
2  fired eggs
1 Cup of shredded cheese of your choice. I used a 4 cheese blend
1/2 cup of Purple Hull Peas
1 onion chopped
2 cloves of garlic chopped
1 large Bell Pepper chopped
1 cup of Ragu Homestyle Pasta Sauce
Olive Oil


Directions:
1. Cook your pasta accordin' to the directions on the package. I used about 3-4 ounces.
2. Fry the bacon and then set it aside.
3. In the same pan add a little olive oil as well as the chopped garlic, bell pepper and onion as well as the chorizo. Cook until the veggies are tender and the chorizo is done.
4.I in a dish ( I used a cast iron) add the pasta, beans, meat and veggie mixture, bacon you have now chopped, Ragu Homestyle and purple hull peas. Stir.
2. Place your two fried eggs on top and then cover in cheese
3. Bake until cheese is melted and everythin' is heated through. I baked at 275f for about 20 mins as not to dry out my noodles are eggs
I love Ragu Homestyle sauces for the flavor and quality they bring. I wouldn't keep partnerin' with Ragu if I didn't actually use them and love them. Y'all have a great brunch this weekend and let me know what's on your menu if you stayin' in.
