A few days ago our oldest son popped in for a visit, and ended up staying to have dinner with us. I made this yummy, quick recipe for Fresh Tomato Bacon Onion Fettucine, and we enjoyed it very much!

The recipe is one I’ve had for years and years, but do not know the original source, since only the recipe was written down on a little 3×5 card.  I’ve made a few changes to the recipe over the years to suit my taste buds, and let me tell you… it is good!

The basic recipe for this tomato bacon onion fettucine is actually quite simple… cook bacon, cook pasta, cook a few other simple fresh ingredients, combine, and serve in about 20 minutes! It tastes wonderful, too!  Here’s how you make this dish:

How To Make Tomato Bacon Onion Fettucine

In a skillet, cook the bacon pieces until crisp. When done, transfer bacon pieces to paper towels to absorb the grease. Drain off the bacon drippings, BUT LEAVE 1 TABLESPOON BACON DRIPPINGS IN SKILLET (sorry for the slightly blurry photo).

**Tip: While bacon is cooking, bring water for pasta to boiling, then cook in separate pot**.

Bacon is cooked until crispy for the fettucine sauce.
Add chopped onion, tomato, basil and crispy cooked bacon pieces to reserved Tablespoon of bacon drippings in skillet. The photo below is before I added the cooked bacon. (I used a variety of colored tomatoes, but any fresh tomatoes will be perfectly fine!).

Cook 3-4 minutes until onion is tender, and tomatoes have begun to break down. Add minced garlic and a couple Tablespoons of starchy water from the pasta that is cooking. Stir well, to combine. Cook, stirring occasionally, until heated completely through on medium heat.

Fresh tomatoes, onions are added to skillet.

Tomatoes, bacon, onions and Italian spices are cooked to make sauce for fettucine.

Prepare Fettucine Noodles

Heat lightly salted water in a large pot for cooking the pasta. Once the water is boiling, add the fettucine pasta, and cook according to package directions. (Note:  I did this while cooking the bacon and sauce to save time).

I made the fettucine from scratch with my little pasta machine earlier in the day just for fun!  Isn’t it beautiful?  I used it in this meal (because I find it relaxing to make homemade pasta), but absolutely recommend using store bought pasta for the easiest way to make this dish!

Fettucine pasta I made to use in this dish.

Fettucine noodles are cooked in boiling water until done.

When the pasta has finished cooking, drain it, then add pasta to the skillet with the sauce. Gently toss with tongs, to thoroughly coat the tomato bacon onion fettucine pasta with sauce.

Cook until heated through, adding an additional touch of water if necessary to thin the sauce to cover.

Cooked and drained fettucine noodles are added to tomato, bacon and onion sauce.

Tomato, bacon and onion sauce is stirred into cooked fettucine pasta.

Serve The Tomato Bacon Onion Fettucine

Place pasta and sauce onto serving dishes, then garnish the tomato bacon onion fettucine with grated Parmesan cheese and a sprinkle of dried or fresh parsley. Serve, and enjoy!

We really enjoyed this tomato bacon onion fettucine with a simple mixed green salad on the side.  The recipe, as written, makes 3 main course servings or 4-5 small side servings. The caloric calculation is based on 3 main course servings.

As I write this blog today, my heart is broken over the Hurricane Harvey destruction and horrific flooding occurring in Texas and Louisiana this week. We are continuing to pray for our fellow citizens impacted by this event, and are hopeful God will meet their needs physically, emotionally and spiritually during and after this tragedy. He is “a very present help in times of trouble”.

Have a good day, friends. May you know God’s unconditional love, no matter what you are going through!
