Quick and easy pasta with bacon and vegetables

This quick and easy pasta with bacon and vegetables was tonight’s supper and was thrown together from what I could find in the kitchen. I am trying to keep the fat content of our food as low as possible so grilled the bacon and just added a small amount of grated cheddar.
