Awesome! My son thought I had lost it when I said bacon spaghetti for dinner, lol. He loved! Our grocery had bacon for .99 cents for a 12ozs. It has great flavor just easn't in nice pretty slices. So it worked great for this as it was cut up anyways. I also used diced tomatoes in juice instead of just sauce. Served with parm to sprinkleo n top, salad and bread. However just ok for leftovers for me, the bacon gets too soggy. I ate it anyways ;) Will definately make again.
This dish has what a lot of pasta dishes are lacking - FLAVOR. It's probably a heart attack on a plate, though. My daughters liked it with Parmesan cheese on top. Uses both real onion AND onion powder? Count me in. Thanks for the recipe Chrissyd76. I wish you'd post more of your own recipes in addition to just this one. I'm sure they would all be yummy!
Great dish! I did not have an onion or any onion powder strangly enough. I desided instead of taking a trip to the grocery store to just go ahead and make it without. Still came out great. Thanks!
