C can remember the first time V ever had this--V was 12 yrs. old. I went in to a neighbors and smelled the wonderful aroma of sautéed onion and bacon and when I asked about it, was invited to watch the whole dish and eat. I thought I was in heaven. It was so good.

- 4 slices bacon
- 1⁄2 diced onion
- 5 cups whole tomatoes, mashed by hand (or 1 large can juice)
