Yummy, easy dish. Took almost no time to throw together. I cooked my bacon in the oven and sauteed the onions in olive oil on the stovetop, then assembled everything after the pasta was drained. Thanks for posting.

Sooooo quick & tasty!! I cut back on the amount of onion & bacon just a bit, probably added 2 more Tbsp of parmesan. This has a lot of flavor to have so few ingredients. A great change from my usual crazy-weeknight meal of doctoring some jarred pasta sauce ;)

This is such a simple recipe for a quick week night supper. The flavors combine very nicely. I added a touch more Parmesan cheese to suit our taste. Thanks, Charmie777!
