I wasn't real sure what to expect from this recipe, but what I got was an outstanding and delicious side dish for my fettucine alfredo! This was very easy to put together and uses ingredients I normally have on hand. Like the other reviewer I didn't have any bacon grease, but I just fried up a few pieces of bacon while I was cubing the bread, chopping tomatoes and mincing the garlic. After removing the bacon I just dumped all of it in the hot grease and proceeded with the recipe. I did use the sugar and loved the contrast of sweet with the flavor of the basil! I halved this recipe as I was only serving 2 of us and we didn't have even a crumb left! It took about 20-25 minutes to cook. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe Culinary Queen!

very easy recipe that came together very nicely. i really had to rush making this but the end result was still great. followed recipe with the exception of leaving out the sugar (i forgot) and i had no time to make bacon fat so i sauteed the bread cubes with strips of bacon. I would suggest using finely shaved parm cheese as i used large grated and it didnt melt well. Excellent taste and delicious.
