Bacon and Tomato Spaghetti
Bacon and Tomato Spaghetti is not only fast and easy to prepare, it’s also super delicious. It’s surprising how so few ingredients can be transformed into something so tasty and satisfying. It’s the perfect lunch, dinner or late night snack. I found this recipe on the Food Network website. I needed to bring something to a potluck and wanted to use the ingredients I already had on hand. The combination of ingredients is sensational. It was a hit!
Needless to say, this spaghetti salad was a super huge hit at the potluck! My only regret was I didn’t bring copies of the recipe, but this recipe can be found on the Food Network Website. Once again Guy from “Guy’s Big Bite” has turned something so simple into something beyond delicious. Pasta never tasted so good! I’m sure the tomatoes, bacon, cheese and balsamic vinaigrette also had something to do with the delicious taste.
A delicious blend of ingredients make up this super pasta dish.
