  1. Awesome! My son thought I had lost it when I said bacon spaghetti for dinner, lol. He loved! Our grocery had bacon for .99 cents for a 12ozs. It has great flavor just easn't in nice pretty slices. So it worked great for this as it was cut up anyways. I also used diced tomatoes in juice instead of just sauce. Served with parm to sprinkleo n top, salad and bread. However just ok for leftovers for me, the bacon gets too soggy. I ate it anyways ;) Will definately make again.
  2. This dish has what a lot of pasta dishes are lacking - FLAVOR. It's probably a heart attack on a plate, though. My daughters liked it with Parmesan cheese on top. Uses both real onion AND onion powder? Count me in. Thanks for the recipe Chrissyd76. I wish you'd post more of your own recipes in addition to just this one. I'm sure they would all be yummy!
  3. Great dish! I did not have an onion or any onion powder strangly enough. I desided instead of taking a trip to the grocery store to just go ahead and make it without. Still came out great. Thanks!
  4. soooo good (if you can get past the nutrition facts haha)!!!!! i added 2 cloves of chopped garlic while sauteing, also added mushrooms and black olives a few minutes before the tomato sauce!!!!
  5. I also make this, I first found it on the back of a box of spaghetti many years ago.. The original recipe doesn't say drain the grease so I never did, it's much to flavorful to waste, lol.. This is delicious..


I live in the "heartland" some call it the "corn belt" I just call it home lol. I am a mother of 3 and grandmother of 4. I love to cook of course and read and surf the net. My kids are my pride and joy and I love cooking for and with them. My son is the best cook of the bunch (almost as good as me LOL) but the girls are good too. They all have been helping me cook since they were old enough to get on a chair. My cooking "bible" is Betty Crocker's Cookbook. Mine is so old tattered and worn that it is hard to read some of the pages. The best recipes I have came from my mother, grandmother and great grandmother. They were passed down through generations. I am hoping to take all of the oldtime recipes and make them into a cookbook for my children. I could probably go on forever but.... :-)
