Serves 6 | Prep Time | Cook Time


12 strips uncooked bacon, cut into ½ inch pieces
1 medium onion, diced
1 lb ground beef
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1 26 oz jar Classico Pasta Sauce (or other favorite brand, or homemade)
1 ¼ Cups half and half (can also use regular milk)
¼ Cup parmesan cheese

1 Box thin spaghetti noodles (I love Barilla’s whole wheat noodles)

1. Cook bacon in a large dutch oven or large pot over medium heat until browned and crisped.

With a slotted spoon, transfer to a paper towel lined plate.

Set aside.

Discard all but 2 Tbsp’s of bacon grease.

Saute onion in remaining bacon grease for 5 minutes, or until softened.

Add beef, salt and pepper; crumble beef and cook until browned, about 5-8 more minutes.

Stir in cooked bacon pieces.

Reduce heat to low and stir in pasta sauce, half and half, and parmesan cheese.

Stir to combine; cover with lid and let simmer for at least 20 minutes, or up to an hour.

2. Meanwhile cook pasta according to package directions.

Spoon noodles onto a large plate and pour sauce right on top.

Sprinkle with additional parmesan cheese if desired.
