1 (12 ounce) jar
roma (plum) tomatoes - halved, seeded, and chopped
So delicious! And so quick to make! Perfect for a wholesome week night meal. I was concerned about the lack of seasonings, but due to the saltiness from the bacon, and the seasonings from the jar of sauce, it didn't need a single adjustment, and my kids ate two servings. We served this with thin whole wheat spaghetti and it paired beautifully.
I totally made this last night!! It was amazing! I chose a roasted red pepper alfredo so I diced up some red pepper and sauted it with the onions!! Soooooooooo goooooood! Great recipe!
This was delicious! I've been looking for an easy good recipe and had no luck until this one. It's great. Thank you!!!
This was a great base recipe for carbonara! All I did different was use Oscar Meyer Turkey bacon ( it's the best) because I can't eat pork, added 2 cups peas to the sauce and used 1/2 cup dry white white instead of water. I honestly didn't think it was going to come out as good as it did was pleasantly surprised. I only had the small rigatoni past, not spaghetti, and my husband and I actually preferred it as the sauce has somewhere to ooze out out of. Lol. He loved it. This was so easy it will definitely be a staple for us!
