    Enjoyed by all, even the 19-mo.-old, Our group gave this a 4.5. If we discover that we subsequently crave this recipe, I'll change this to 5 stars. Most of my prep time was cutting the bacon into bite-size pieces. I removed the bacon to a paper-lined plate to easily discard all but 1 Tbsp. of bacon grease. We all had crushed tomatoes in our pantry, but all agreed that we prefered the chunkiness and fresh taste of (canned) whole tomatoes bought just for this dish. This is a sneaky dish; while some said this was not a favorite dish, everyone had 2 servings. Made for Please Review My Recipe tag game.

    This was a quick and comforting meal to make when I didn't feel much like cooking. I think it probably took me 15 minutes at the most. I didn't have the green onions so I went without. This is a nice simple pasta dish I served with some crusty bread and a salad. Thanks for sharing!
