Tomatoes + Feta Cheese + Bacon

If you have never tried the tomato + feta cheese + bacon combo, you need to.  It is amazing.  I might be a little biased, since we don't use much table salt in our house and bacon is oh-sooo-salty (and feta is OH-sooooo-salty).  We had it with pasta, but I'm dreaming of the possibilities.  Crostini with crumble of feta over a slice of tomato over a piece of bacon.  Warmed bacon wrapped cherry tomatoes with a little hunk of feta hiding under that divine porcine blanket.  And, for all you pregnant readers out there, there must be a way to incorporate ice cream into this (no? too far?).

Yummy with bruschetta

BFT Pasta
3 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
2 Tbsp crumbled bacon (or Hormel bacon bits in our house)
1/4 cup feta cheese
2 tsp dried basil
Cooked pasta

Saute the tomatoes and basil in a tablespoon of olive oil until softened, but not mushy, about 5 minutes.  Remove from heat.  Add bacon, feta cheese and warm pasta.  Toss and serve.
