Found this in a 2001 Taste of Home issue. We grow tomatoes and whenever we have an abundance sitting on our counter, it's "fabulous fettuccine" for us.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Remove to paper towels. Drain, reserving 1 tbsp drippings. Add oil and onions to drippings; saute until tender, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add tomatoes and garlic; simmer uncovered for 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in tarragon, salt, pepper and cayenne; cover and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Meanwhile, cook fettuccine according to package directions.
  5. Add parsley to the tomato mixture; simmer 5 minutes longer. Stir in bacon.
  6. Drain fettuccine; top with tomato mixture. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

This is a great recipe. A friend made this for us a few years ago, after tasting it I had to have the recipe. It is really tasty. I have served it for family meals and parties over 20 people, with rave reviews. Easy too. We don't eat a lot of pasta and if I had been searching for a pasta recipe this most likely would not be something I would of chosen, I like cream sauces. I'm glad my friend served it or I would of missed out.

This was good. Full of flavor. I didn't have any parsley like I thought I did and I didn't have any Parmesan cheese either. It was still good I had it with your Recipe #305693. It was a great combination.. I will be making this again.. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for PAC Fall '08.
