Naysayers Unite: Diet Dish….with Bacon?


Macaroni with Bacon and Tomato Sauce

4 slices of bacon, diced

1 onion, chopped coarsely

1 yellow pepper, diced

2 cloves of garlic

2 teaspoons of red pepper flakes

4 cups of cooked macaroni

28 oz can of diced tomatoes

Salt & Pepper to taste

Brown bacon in pan until halfway cooked, adding in onion and yellow pepper until cooked through.

Season with garlic, red pepper, salt and pepper. Cook for another two minutes.

Pour in some juice from tomato sauce, scraping brown bits from bottom of pan. Add rest of tomatoes. Cook through. Stir in pasta.

This runs about 350 calories per serving and it serves four. I couldn’t help myself! 🙂
