This is a wonderful tomato-less spaghetti which still has tons of flavor. The bacon has such a savory flavor which will make your family ask for seconds.—Janaan Cunningham, Greendale, Wisconsin

"This was very tasty and super quick to make. I used turkey bacon and 8 strips was way too much-which is saying a lot because we are bacon lovers. It may be because turkey bacon doesn't shrink as much but next time I will only use 4 strips of turkey bacon when making this recipe. To serve I dusted it with additional shaved parmesan cheese and freshly ground pepper."
