Bison and Bacon Arrabbiata

with Fresh Linguine

Arrabbiata literally means ‘angry’, which may sound puzzling given how tasty this pasta is! It's time to celebrate Canadian-raised bison with a luxurious arrabbiata! Earthy mushrooms, savoury garlic and fresh parsley fill out the background notes of this punchy pasta dish!


Produced in a facility that processes milk, sesame, eggs, fish, shellfish, crustaceans, mustard, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, soybean and sulphites.

Cook bacon
  • Cut bacon crosswise into 1/4-inch strips.
  • Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat.

Cook sauce

  • Add tomato sauce base, broth concentrate and crushed tomatoes. Cook, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens slightly, 3-4 min. Season with salt and pepper.
Cook linguine
  • Meanwhile, add linguine to the boiling water. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender, 2-3 min.
