1/2 pound peppered bacon, diced 2 tablespoons chopped green onion 2 teaspoons minced garlic 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes 1 teaspoon dried basil 1 teaspoon salt ground black pepper to taste 1 (16 ounce) package linguine pasta 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, reserving drippings, and set aside. Saute green onion and garlic in bacon drippings over medium heat for one minute. Stir in tomatoes, basil, salt and ground black pepper; simmer for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain. Toss hot pasta with sauce and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Arkansas Peppered Bacon

A cult classic.

This special pepper coated bacon has been made in the foothills of Mt. Petit Jean in Arkansas by the Ruff Family for over 60 years. Each slab is cured in a “family secret” wet brine of salt, sugar and spices for four or five days. It’s smoked over hickory for just under 24 hours, rolled in brown sugar and finally hand-rubbed with cracked black peppercorns.

A little diced pepperoni and sausage would probably be a good addition to that as well.

Oh and added a little finely-sliced mushroom that has been sauteed in butter and olive oil first.

Yum.

You had me at “bacon”, “tomato”, and “linguine”. The only improvement I can imagine would be fusili.

I’m not Italian but I live in the world’s largest Italian-speaking community outside of Italy so I know from pasta and tomatoes :-)

No Arkansas bacon here, but we get thick-cut pepper bacon in 15 lb. boxes from a meat wholesaler to break down and freeze.

Love it!

Holy Mary! After years of being vegan, I find that the meat I enjoy most now is bacon. I can live without everything else, but bacon is truly food of the gods. This sounds wonderful.
