"Great simple pasta dish. Good to have the night before a race. This is also good with sauteed shrimp."

1 (16 ounce) package
bacon, cut into 1/4 inch pieces
chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
Perfect side dish, perfect comfort food. To tell you the truth, have this with nothing more than a tossed green salad and some good bread and you've got yourself quite a meal. Simple perfection.
Commend sense is needed here, never cook bacon in olive oil! Cook the bacon until crisp,drain. Cook garlic in about 1Tb of the olive oil until soft but not brown. Toss garlic and bacon in spaghetti along with any veggies you like and the parsley. Then drizzle good olive oil to taste over all and toss. I like to add a few pepper flakes. Not greasy and very good this way. Also added parm and onion.
I make this all the time for a quick easy inexpensive meal or side. I throw chopped up onion, mushrooms squash or any combination of vegetables on hand while sauteing. Always a hit and an easy way to get veggies in kids...what kid does not love spaghetti!!
I make this all the time...and then sprinle with parm cheese before serving.
I'm do happy I found this recipe. My Grandmother made this dish while I was growing up. This recipe brought back memories. Its a high calorie dish but so yummy! I subed the bacon for turkey bacon. Its just as good. Thanks for this recipe :)
I add a whipped up raw egg to the hot pasta along with the bacon and 1/4 c Parmesan cheese. Easy and delicious.
Meh. This was okay but really bland and needed something like oregano or rosemary added for flavor. Maybe some parmesan too? It was just grease and pasta with a little garlic taste, not too impressive.
I am going to rate this a 4, but it was a one timer at our house. Flavor was good just not our style. A couple of MUSTS: Cut the oil WAY back, add additional veggies/spices. I added broccoli, onion, red&green bell peppers. And lastly make sure bacon is crispy.
