Rigatoni with spicy bacon & tomato sauce

Among various European cuisines, Italian cuisine is vastly poular all over the globe. It is my favorite too. While on travel across Europe, I never miss an opportunity to try Italian foods whenever I see a good Italian restaurant. However, Italian food is not limited to pizzas, its most recognisible face; in fact there are various others among which pasta is my all time favourite. Pastas come in varius shapes and with innumerable delightful creamy sauces. Among many delicatable meat-based pasta sauces, here I share one.
