Directions

  1. Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain all but about 2 tablespoons bacon drippings from skillet. Cook and stir onion with bacon in reserved drippings until onion is translucent, 5 to 10 minutes. Add garlic; cook and stir until fragrant, 2 minutes.
  2. Pour Alfredo sauce into onion-bacon mixture; rinse jar with the water and pour into skillet. Stir sauce with a wooden spoon, thoroughly scraping any brown bits of food from bottom of the skillet. Bring sauce to a simmer; add tomatoes. Simmer sauce until flavors blend, about 5 minutes.

So delicious! And so quick to make! Perfect for a wholesome week night meal. I was concerned about the lack of seasonings, but due to the saltiness from the bacon, and the seasonings from the jar of sauce, it didn't need a single adjustment, and my kids ate two servings. We served this with thin whole wheat spaghetti and it paired beautifully.
