  1. Cook pasta according to manufacturers instructions. Drain and keep warm.
  2. Heat up a large skillet (I used cast iron) over medium heat. When hot, add bacon and cook until almost all pieces are crispy. Add veggies at once and saute, stirring often. Cook 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Add cream, salt and pepper and cook until thickened, stirring constantly.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in the cooked pasta. Stir until coated.
  5. Serve garnished with chopped basil or green onions.
  6. Refrigerate the leftovers for up to 2 days.
