‘In-a-Hurry’ Pasta sauce – Bacon, Capsicum and Tomato

BaconSauce copyMy kids say this tastes like pizza flavoured sauce!
Great for busy nights when you need something served fast. I put the pasta on the stove when I start the sauce and it is ready to serve all at the same time. Make a salad while the Thermomix cooks the sauce and hey presto – dinner!
