"A fairly easy and tasty pasta dish adapted from Sunset. It uses ingredients you may have on hand. I'm sure it would be even better made with fresh tomatoes and added herbs! Posted for the You Want What?! recipe posting game."

Love the smokiness the bacon brings to this sauce! Fast and easy to prepare with good flavours. I added oregano, basil and rosemary to the sauce. Thank you for sharing! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
