This recipe comes from my husband's grandfather who come from Italy. My hubby only remembers what was in it so I took what he said and after a few trys I got it right. You can adjust amounts for your taste and size of servings. This recipe is easy and can be made meatless. Hope you enjoy!!

How to Make Grandpa Guy's Pasta

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook pasta el dente, I use shells but any type is fine. Drain and set aside
  2. Cook bacon in large enough pan to add all ingredients including pasta. (I didn't make it clear and one of my nieces used 4 pans)Remove Bacon nd set aside to chop later. Use olive oil if you want to omit bacon
  3. Add green pepper & onions to pan, saute until onions are clear but not browned. Add garlic toss and then add pasta. Toss to warm pasta and then add oregano and tomatoes making sure tomatoes don't get mushy.
  4. Plate and top with chopped bacon. I also sprinkle with parma cheese, but my husband doesn't.
