Bow Tie Pasta with Bacon, Corn, & Parmesan

Don't you just love a recipe title that tells you everything about the meal?  This one does.  But I do respect her for not coming up with some dumb name, like so many recipe authors do, like Moonlight Pasta or something.  This one is from the $5 Dinner Mom cookbook.

Bow Tie Pasta with Bacon, Corn, & Parmesan
12 oz bow tie pasta
15 oz can diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano, undrained
6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
15 oz can corn kernels, drained (I used 1 cup frozen)
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
Salt and pepper to taste

In a large pot or dutch oven, cook the pasta by package directions.  Drain and return to pot, or transfer to serving bowl.  Add all remaining ingredients and toss to combine.

How easy is that?  And it tasted great too.  We had this with one of those bagged salad kits and sliced french bread.  A very easy meal.  I'm sure we'll have it again.  Also, use more bacon if you want because you really can't go wrong with more bacon.
