This is a favorite dish of mine from childhood, except my mom used fettuccine. I am using spaghetti since that is what I have in the house.
Bacon Tomato Spaghetti
Slightly Modified from my mom's recipe
1 lb spaghetti
1 onion diced
1 large tomato chopped ( I am using crushed since I have it in the house)
8 slices of bacon cooked crisp
1 teaspoon minced garlic
Parmesan cheese to taste
In a large saucepan boil water for pasta. Meanwhile drizzle 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil in large saute pan. Add onions and cook until translucent, then add the garlic and cook for an additional minute or so. Add tomato and let simmer for 10-12 minutes while pasta is cooking. Crumble bacon and add to onion mixture and simmer another 2-3 minutes. Toss with pasta and top with cheese.
