Tomato Bacon Pomodoro

One year when Derek was training for a marathon, I sought out pasta recipes for him to carb load the week before the main event. I came across this and we deemed it "a keeper".

1 package frozen Ravioli or Tortellini (we used cheese filled tortellini)
1 Tbsp olive oil
8 oz bacon, finely diced
1/2 medium onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
1/4 tsp basil
1/4 tsp oregano
5 Tbsp tomato paste
2/3 c chicken broth
1/2 Tbsp parsley

Prepare frozen pasta as directed.

Meanwhile, for sauce, place oil and bacon in pan Heat and cook bacon until brown. Add onion and garlic and cook until soft. Stir in remaining ingredients and simmer for 3 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve over prepared pasta.

We topped with some shredded cheese (and served with french bread and "savory zucchini stix" (a separate post))
