Shell Pasta with Bacon (Nui Xao Thit Ba Roi)

This is my favorite quickie pasta dish that has proven itself to satisfy everybody, even the picky eaters. Kids love it, parents love it, and I love it so much that I have to remind myself to not eat so much and save some for the kids. I love that it has the least amount of ingredients, takes only a few minutes to make, and it costs about the price of one happy meal. Hey, can't go wrong when it's fast, good, and cheap! That's a rare combo. Also, something about the soy sauce that makes the pasta even more tasty. Yep, I've Asianized it. So, I hope you enjoy and make this dish soon.
