"I just made this the other day when I was looking for new ways to serve pasta. I am not surprised to find it featured in the daily recipe emailing. I used lower sodium bacon (the only thing we ever h..." See moreave), three fresh tomatoes and a small yellow onion (again because this is what I had on hand). I omitted the added salt and poured off the extra grease and added a bit of extra pepper. As I found the sauce a bit dry for our tastes, I did about 1/4 cup of no-sodium chicken broth and simmered. I added the bacon, parmesan cheese and some parsley to the pan just before serving and sprinkled a handful of crumbled fresh mozzarella on top on the plates. Very tasty and well received by my husband, college age daughter and her friend. I gave it five stars because, although I did not follow the recipe as written, this is an excellent "idea" recipe to enjoy and be creative. I will make this again. Next time, I am thinking I might try the sauce with the cream mentioned by another reviewer, instead of the chicken broth. I am thinking that another time I might vary by adding grilled chicken pieces. Thank you for the versatile recipe."
"If I could give this 10 Stars, I would! My kids who don't care for tomatoes, absolutely loved this recipe! My husband said it was restaurant quality....music to a cooks ears!! Per other reviews, I dou..." See morebled the tomatoes(I used diced tomatoes seasoned with basil, garlic & oregano) added a 14 oz can of chicken broth and added 1 cup of 1/2 & 1/2. I wanted to serve this as a main dish, so I diced and sauteed 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts. I set aside and sauteed yellow onion, diced red bell pepper and garlic in a portion of the bacon grease. I added the tomatoes & chicken broth, and simmered for 10 minutes, then added the 1/2 & 1/2 and 12 oz angel hair pasta. I served topped with bacon, chicken and fresh grated parmesan cheese. This is recipe is a keeper! Thanks for sharing. "
