BLT Skillet Recipe

Publisher Photo
This weeknight meal is fast and reminiscent of a BLT, with its chunks of bacon and tomato. The whole wheat linguine gives the skillet extra flavor and texture. —Edrie O'Brien, Denver, Colorado

"Hubby made this for our first time and took some liberties, but this is a wonderful recipe! Old Bay was added to the pasta water and pre-cooked shrimp were dropped in to heat up right before draining. He used six bacon strips and 2 tomatoes just because we like them. This is a way different meal than we normally eat, but are so glad we tried it. Thanks so much for posting the recipe. We'll have it regularly in the future."

"Who doesn't love bacon and I love that it uses linguini - I only added a bit of mozzarella as we are cheese freaks"

"This was good. A lot more flavor then expected. Will need to make 1-1/2 batches next time. It needs more tomato in my opinion. Served this with sauteed squash and a salad. will make again."
