4 slices of bacon, chopped fine 2 tbsp olive oil 1 large onion, chopped 1/2 pound large farfalle (bow tie pasta) 1 tomato (about 1/2 pound), chopped 1/4 cup water 1/4 tsp dried hot red pepper flakes, or to taste 1/3 cup finely chopped fresh parsley leaves 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
In a deep skillet cook the bacon over moderate heat, stirring, until it is crisp and transfer it with a slotted spoon to a bowl. Pour off all but 1 tbsp of fat from the skillet, add the oil, and in the fat cook the onion over moderate heat, stirring, until it is golden brown. In a kettle of salted boiling water cook the pasta until it is al dente. While the pasta is cooking, stir the tomato into the onion mixture with the 1/4 cup water, the red pepper flakes, and salt to taste, simmer the sauce, stirring, for 5 minutes, and stir in the parsley and the bacon. Drain the pasta well, add it to the sauce, and toss it well. Add the Parmesan and toss the pasta well.
