8 oz. IGAŽ thin spaghetti (guess what box recipe I was inspired by!), uncooked
3/4 pound IGAŽ bacon (hmm, a theme...), cut into 1-inch pieces
1 med. onion, cut into 8 wedges and separated
1 tsp. fresh garlic, minced
8 oz. IGAŽ(know where I shop yet?) Mozzarella Cheese, shredded
1/4 cup chopped basil
1/2 cup grated Romano Cheese (what, not IGAŽ?!)
1/4 tsp. coarsely grated IGAŽ ground pepper
This filling, low-budget dinner comes together quickly; a nice change if you're in a rut of "spaghetti in red sauce." Sometimes the recipe on the box is worth reading! And I'm fairly certain that your own favorite brand of...spaghetti/bacon/cheese/pepper...would work out just as deliciously.
Yield: 6 servings for hungry people
Cook IGAŽ (Laughing by now!) Thin Spaghetti according to package instruction; drain and set aside. In a skillet over medium high heat, cook bacon, onion and garlic, stirring occasionally until onion is soft and bacon is crisp (8-10 mins). Drain off grease. Place spaghetti into serving dish. Toss cooked spaghetti with Mozzarella cheese and basil; gently toss with bacon mixture. Sprinkle with Romano cheese and pepper. Serve at once.
