      Very tasty, healthy and delicious! I made some changes based on preference and what I had on hand. I used a 14 oz can of tomatoes instead of fresh, cilantro instead of oregano, leftover whole wheat spaghetti instead of macaroni and 1/2 pound of bacon instead of 1 pound. My husband and I both loved it. Thanks for the quick, yummy recipe!
