BLT Skillet Recipe

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

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces uncooked whole wheat linguine

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley

"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!"

"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."

"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."

"Delicious... I agree with another reviewer. The lemon adds a refreshing taste to this dish. My modifications were minimal. I added one more slice of bacon, doubled the garlic and substituted baby spinach for the parsley. It was easy and quick to prepare and I will definitely make it again. Thank you for another great recipe!!! In answer to Colleen16's questions, I used one cup of julienned spinach."

"The whole family loved this.....even the picky eater. The lemon juice really sets it off. I used regular linguine since that is what I had on hand. I also added a little chicken broth, it just seemed too dry for my husbands taste. We will defiantly have this again."
