This quick weeknight meal reminds me of a BLT, with its chunks of bacon and tomato. The whole wheat linguine gives the skillet dish extra flavor and texture. —Edrie O'Brien, Denver, Colorado

"Very good and next time will probably add a little more bacon. Very easy to make and I tripled the recipe and used regular linguini not whole wheat."

"I made this tonight for my family and it was nearly all eaten. I had quadrupled the recipe because I have four kids and two are teens. It was very very good, and nice and lighter for a hot humid summer evening. I did add diced onion and fresh rosemary from the garden and a side of sliced, chilled cucumbers for a wonderful dinner. This recipe goes into the "keeper" file!!!"

"Made this for our supper tonight and it was delicious. I over-guessed the amount of spaghetti to use, and there was a bit too much, so I just added another tomato and just a little olive oil. Perfect. We will have this again!"
