BLT in pasta form? Yes, please! A chunky sauce of tomatoes and greens—plus BACON—tossed with penne results in an easy pasta dinner that's anything but basic.
Bring water to boil for pasta.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, add oil, 2 turns of pan, bacon, and render 2-3 minutes. Add leeks, shallot, garlic, salt, pepper, bay, and thyme, and stir to soften 5 minutes. Wilt in escarole or kale, add tomato product of choice, stock and beans, stir, bring to boil, simmer at low boil 15-20 minutes to serve. Remove bay leaf.
Cook pasta 1 minute less than package directions for al dente and toss with beans, greens and tomatoes, adjust salt and pepper, toss with a couple of handfuls of cheese and pass more at table.
