Rated 4 out of 5 by from Adjusted recipe to make for gourmet 2 yr old grandson who has given up on meat for the moment. Adjusted recipe to make for gourmet 2 yr old grandson who has given up on meat for the moment. This was a hit! Would prefer oz weight on pasta to make substitution easier. Used 8 oz mini fusilli, doubled bacon, used only one 15 oz can petite diced low sodium tomatoes then added 2 cups prepared veggie pasta sauce and omitted tomato paste, reduced onion and garlic a bit. The crushed red pepper was just enough for our taste. Adults liked this too so will add to our recipe box. Thanks for a tasty recipe idea!

However, it is not very filling and I would not drain the tomatoes next time. I may add some ground beef or turkey to make it more filling. But it definitely has just the right amount of spice to it. I would make this again for sure.

I've had this in my recipe box for a while now and I finally got a chance to make it, it was a hit & miss in our house. My kids pushed the tomatoes to the side of their plates and I thought it was quite bland. I substituted penne and Parmesan. Don't think I would make this again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and easy. Quick and easy. I did use four slices of bacon instead of two, but we also got more than 4 servings out of it. I skipped the crushed red pepper so my toddler would eat it, but my husband and I added it to ours. We both thought it was light and flavorful!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from There's so little bacon in this that you can't taste it. There's so little bacon in this that you can't taste it. There aren't enough drippings to add any flavor. Basically noodles and tomatoes. To add more bacon would probably help but then it wouldn't be a healthy recipe. Won't be making again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have made this recipe for over 30 years. Have made this recipe for over 30 years. It's always a hit. Use your imagination and add pepperoni with or without the bacon, You can substitute different sausages and don't be afraid to add different spices. This recipe is hard to ruin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good recipe. Good recipe. Except for the sodium content - that is NOT healthy. I liked the idea of a crumbled peice of turkey bacon on top - that and using no salt added tomato paste really cut down the sodium and you can't tell the difference!
