Bacon Pasta Sauce

shirley debella


This is one of my mother's tastiest sauce recipes. I remember the wonderful smell of our house when she would prepare it. My husband just loves when I make it. About the red pepper ingredient,try it sometime. The seeds gives it just the right taste. Use as much as you like, but try some a little at a time if you are not crazy about a little heat.
