Frugal Spagetti

Dee Zornow


My gram used to always make her spagetti like this, it was before Italian Spagetti came about. I'm up in age myself now, but still get a craving for Gram's spagetti. A very inexpensive dish, and tastes good even cold the next day!
I live alone so I always cut the recipe in half. Still makes a lot, I'm usually enjoying it for a couple of days.

2Meanwhile, chop the bacon and dice the onion & green pepper. Fry bacon pieces and when almost done, add the diced onions and green pepper for about 5 minutes.
Stir mixture a few times so it doesn't burn.
