    This was a dish that was served at an Italian restaurant that is no longer in business. I am not sure how I got this recipe, but it is great.

      Wonderful recipe! I added a fresh diced tomato and let it cook down a little with the onions and garlic. Made a great dinner for everyone! Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT 7.

      Outstanding!! This goes straight into my best of the best recipe file. We all went back for seconds (well, I went back for thirds). I loved the combination of the crispy bacon, almost caramelized onions, parmesan cheese and olive oil. I only used 1/4 cup of the parmesan and, for us, it was perfect. I might add just a touch less olive oil next time...but only a touch. Gosh, I can't stop thinking about the wonderful flavor in this recipe. No need to add anything else to this recipe in my opinion. Thanks!
