About this recipe: For a quick and flavourful Italian classic, sauté bacon or pancetta and add onions, garlic and dried crushed chillies. Cook with tinned plum tomatoes for a mere 10 minutes, stir in fresh parsley or basil and toss with cooked spaghetti. Pass the Parmesan and enjoy!
Wholewheat pasta is a good source of complex carbohydrate and has a low GI value.
Super tasty dish!!! - 18 Jan 2013
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
