Pasta with Tomato Bacon Sauce

bacon pasta

A basic pasta with some sort of tomato sauce is often my go-to dinner idea when I need something fast and flavourful. I’m always looking at ways to change it up a bit though, and this recipe, from chef Michael Smith, fits the bill perfectly.

This pasta uses regular, slab bacon and a healthy amount of garlic to create a sauce that’s meaty enough for my husband, flavourful enough for me (l love garlic!) and simple enough to satisfy the picky teenage daughter (contains “normal” ingredients :).

  2. I made this last night for myself, and it was wonderful!
