BLT Skillet

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

    This is so good! I tweaked it a little. I used leftover bacon and leftover bacon fat, I also subbed halved grape tomatoes and used regular spaghetti noodles. I sauteed the garlic and tomatoes for a few minutes and then the chopped bacon for about 2-3 minutes and then added the noodles and kinda stir fried them before adding the spices and lemon juice. I removed from heat and tossed in the parm before serving.

    This was great. Next time I make it, I'll cut the back up into super small pieces. I think I left mine too big. Easy and fast to cook and we both loved it.

    Really good light dinner. I used already cooked bacon and substituted some olive oil for the bacon drippings. Was sad there wasn't more!!

    I made this last night and it was sooo good. I put chilli and white button mushrooms in without parsley. Thank you for the recipe. Definitely making it again.

    This turned out good. I really liked it but my husband wasn’t too crazy about it. The fresh parsley was his main complaint. Maybe dried parsley would have been better. I really like that I didn’t have to do math to make a smaller meal. Serves 2.

    This dish is amazing and fairly cheap to make. My husband likes a bit of heat in his food so I chose canned tomatoes with green chiles. I also added diagonal sliced green onion, sliced black olives and grated fresh parmesan cheese over this dish before serving. We loved this recipe!!!
