Tomato and bacon with meatballs and pasta

Bilby orginally posted this recipe in the Sept 2010 Whats for Dinner thread.

Last night I made it up as I went along and it tasted pretty good, here goes ....

Tomato and bacon with meatballs and pasta.

Made mini meatballs to usual recipe.
2 cups cooked pasta, I used small penne
1/2 onion
2-3 rashers of thin sliced or roughly chopped bacon
1/4 cup cooked peas (I did frozen)
2 whole tomatoes deseeded and roughly chopped
Pepper to taste
Clove crushed garlic
Teaspoon mixed herbs
Tablespoon olive oil

Oil in pan and cook meatballs, take out of pan and set aside covered to keep warm.
Loosening up those crispy bits of meatball on the pan bottom add a little more oil if needed and add bacon, onion and garlic for a minute to saute then add mixed herbs peas and tomatoes.
Lastly toss in the pasta and stir to mix well. Add pepper to taste.
Don't over cook the tomato mix or the tomatoes go to mush.

Plate up the pasta then pop on a few meatballs. If you wish grate over a little cheese but it's nice without it.

Those tasty bits of meatball on the bottom of the pan give this pasta dish some great flavours, my lot liked this and asked for it again.
