Let's Make It
Cook pasta as directed on package, omitting salt.
Meanwhile, cook and stir bacon in large nonstick skillet on medium heat 14 min. or until crisp. Remove bacon from skillet with slotted spoon, reserving 1 Tbsp. drippings in skillet. Drain bacon on paper towels. Add tomatoes and garlic to drippings in skillet; cook 1 min. or just until garlic starts to brown.
Drain pasta. Add to skillet with wine; cook 2 min., stirring occasionally. Stir in remaining ingredients.
When draining the cooked pasta, reserve 1/4 of the pasta cooking water. Use instead of the wine.
Prepare using whole wheat, whole grain or gluten-free pasta.
Substitute yellow or red cherry tomatoes for the grape tomatoes. Or, use 1/2 cup of each colored tomato.
