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

"I made this tonight and give it five stars. Delicious. I used spaghetti instead of linguine since I didn't have any and followed another reviewer's advice and used a can of diced tomatoes. It was delicious. So quick and easy, too. We will have this again.

"I made this recipe as written,except omitting the parsley. With a vegetable side, it made a nice dinner, light but filling. Next time I might add some olives, mild chile peppers, for a little more excitement."

"Made this last night for dinner and the guys loved it. I needed more than the recipe called for so increased quantities. Since I didn't have whole wheat pasta, I used a pound of angel hair. I also used a pound of bacon and a container of halved cherub tomatoes. I added more garlic and threw in a minced sweet onion. Lots of parmesan and a bit of the starchy cooking liquid from the pasta made a nice sauce. The lemon juice - I used a whole lemon - added a nice contrast to the dish. Try it!"

"This is an absolutely delicious and easy to make casserole. I changed it up just a bit from the original recipe. My family enjoys the flavors of onion in nearly every dish where it's appropriate. I added about half a cup of minced onion. I also found in preparing it that I preferred to use a 14 and a half ounce can of diced tomatoes, as opposed to fresh tomatoes. I did not drain off the diced tomatoes as I found the dish can use a little bit of extra moisture. This recipe is a winner, and now in my regular rotation of dishes. It is just as good served as leftovers the next day. A hit with everyone I served to!"

"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!"
