Eat Skinny: BLT Pasta Salad
Hi friends! I had so many ambitious intentions of posting a new recipe today but then I realized I haven’t slept in a week and I’m so tired I could cry. But don’t worry, I’m still sharing an INSANELY delicious pasta salad I made last week for work. I’m not that MEAN. But before we divulge deeper into that, I want to share a few pictures from my trip to Arizona! It was such a great weekend. I plan on doing a larger recap,but wanted to share a few favorites!
Some snapshots of the BEAUTIFUL kitchen in the condo we stayed at in Scottsdale. I mean, seriously, could you ask for a more amazing place to cook? I’m definitely saving these so when we move, I can tell the contractors to make this exact same kitchen.
Isn’t Sedona just the prettiest place you ever did see? The whole time I was there I was like “this isn’t a real place! It’s just a painting!”
Plus, I got to see one of these for the first time, ever! So that was cool.
It was a lot of fun, but as any bachelorette party can be, utterly exhausting. I just want to sleep for the next week and a half. But, I can’t because I leave for THE BEACH on Friday! Two of my very best friends and I are hitting up the South Carolina beaches for the weekend! I’m just ready to relax ocean side and catch some rays.
Now, I’ve teased y’all long enough, let’s talk BLT PASTA.
No, your eyes aren’t fooling you, this is real.
It’s also, quite possibly, the most delicious thing I’ve ever made. I know, such a bold statement for such a simple dish. But guys! It has bacon, and creaminess AND pasta.
This is the perfect side dish for a Mother’s Day brunch and especially a Memorial Day picnic. But you’ll want to double, er, quadruple the recipe b/c each person will probably eat an entire batch themselves.
Or is that just me who can’t control themselves enough to eat only a serving size? But guys, test me. Take a bite of this. Serve yourself a dainty bowl. You’ll be going back, face first, for seconds.
