Baked Spaghetti with Bacon                                        6 servings

A different take on traditional spaghetti with meat sauce, but it is



equally delicious.  This recipe comes together quickly and is great



when you don't have ground beef handy.  


•  8 slices bacon, ½-inch dice

•  1 small onion, ½-inch dice

•  ½ lb spaghetti

•  1 (9-ounce) can of diced tomatoes, any kind 

•  ½ cup cheese (your choice), grated  


•  ½ cup bread crumbs

Preheat oven to 350°F. You will need a greased 9-x-11 glass baking dish.


1.   Fry bacon and onion until brown; add tomatoes; simmer for 10 minutes;

     add grated cheese and simmer until it melts.

2.  Cook spaghetti (al dente) and drain according to directions on package.

3.  Add cooked spaghetti; salt and pepper to taste.  Lightly stir;  pour into

      prepared baking dish.  Sprinkle with breadcrumbs.  Bake for 30 minutes

      until golden and bubbly.


•  You could substitute Italian sausage (½-lb) for the bacon.

•  Add Parmesan cheese and 2 minced cloves of garlic to the bread crumbs



   before baking.
