  1. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over low heat. Cook the bacon in the oil until it just begins to crisp. Stir in the onion. Cook and stir until bacon is crisp and onion is soft. Stir in the garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Remove the bacon mixture from the pan and reserve.
  2. Brown the ground beef in the saucepan; drain. Stir the bacon mixture, crushed tomatoes, and tomato sauce into the beef. Season with salt to taste. Simmer over low heat while pasta is cooking.
  3. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Stir in the shell pasta, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta until cooked through but still firm to the bite, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain.
  4. Toss hot pasta with bacon and beef sauce to serve.

Alright, I changed this quite a bit, but I still used the same ingredients. I browned the beef, and then threw everything into the slow cooker on low for four hours (I'm a huge fan of my slow co...

Quite plain, but the family enjoyed it. Kids love pasta. Added an extra tin of tomatoes.

Being big bacon fans, I knew I had to try this out on the family. I used sausage instead of ground beef, just 28oz crushed tomatoes (no tomato sauce) and added a teaspoon each of parsley and Ita...

Cooked as the recipe says. When I mixed the pasta together I used less noodles than called for. Turned out great. Liked the sauce! Thanks for the recipe.

I added more spices to the meat to make it spicy (crushed red pepper, chives, black pepper). It was awesome. I also didn't use that much bacon. It was simple and easy but great.

Simple, quick, and delicious. I had everything on hand, and made a fast, delicious meal for my family. Thanks!
