Hot red-pepper flakes offer a pleasant contrast to mild mozzarella and salty Canadian bacon. To turn this into a satisfying vegetarian pasta, just leave out the bacon.
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
1/2 pound fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 clove garlic, minced
2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
3/4 teaspoon salt
Dried red pepper flakes
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 small onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups canned crushed tomatoes in thick puree (one 15-ounce can)
1/4 cup water
3/4 pound penne
1/2 pound canadian bacon, cut into 1/4-inch dice

DIRECTIONS
In a small bowl, combine the mozzarella, garlic, 1 1/2 tablespoons of the oil, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt, 1/4 teaspoon red-pepper flakes, and the parsley.


In a large saucepan, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil over moderately low heat. Cook the onion, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes, water, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, and a pinch of red- pepper flakes. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes.


In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the pasta until just done, about 13 minutes. Reserve 1/4 cup of the pasta-cooking water. Drain. Toss the pasta with the tomato sauce, mozzarella mixture, and Canadian bacon. If the sauce seems too thick, add some of the reserved pasta-cooking water.
