BLT Skillet Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 4 ounces uncooked whole wheat linguine
  • 4 Jones Dairy Farm Dry-Aged Bacon strips, cut into 1-1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 plum tomato, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley


  • 1. Cook linguine according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to paper towels; drain, reserving 1 teaspoon drippings.
  • 2. In the drippings, saute tomato and garlic for 1-2 minutes or until heated through. Stir in the bacon, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  • 3. Drain linguine; add to the skillet. Sprinkle with cheese and parsley; toss to coat. Yield: 2 servings.

"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!"

"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!!!"

"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."

"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."
