    I changed the ingredients slightly. I substituted spaghetti for the linguine, added more bacon and found i only needed one can of tomatoes. The tomatoes were very watery so tried reducing for a while but after half an hour, was in danger of ruining the meal so strained out the extra juice. While i think the amount of pasta would feed six, the rest of it does not. Tasty though - 30 Sep 2012

    I ran out of onions and fresh basil so I substituted for dry basil and left out the onions and was still fabulous so easy!! - 17 Jun 2015
