As described this is by no means chef cooking or culinary award winning. This is down home using what you have (bacon could sub) cooking. if you follow the cook on YouTube he mentioned she was a depression Era cook and honestly I made this exactly as is and it was good! As expected this doesn't hold up well because the penne gets soggy but you could always cook half the pasta add in and the other half separate and add in as you microwave or reheat! Good simple and cheap for the servings!
I didn't like the pink colour in the picture so I omitted the tomato paste. I didn't have white beans so I used black beans and it turned out great. The pasta was perfectly al dente and I will try using a combination of white wine and broth the next time I make it. I would also substitute either rapini or fresh spinach for the peas. I like a recipe where I usually have the ingredients on hand.
