Spaghetti all"Amatriciana Recipe

This can be whipped up fast for a very good dinner.

Fry 6 pieces of bacon until crisp.

Drain on paper towels.

Dice the bacon, dice 4 cloves of garlic and 1 large onion.

Saute' the onions and garlic in the bacon grease and add the diced bacon. Sprinkle in 1/2 tsp. of red pepper flakes. This just gives it a little kick.

Add 2 28oz. cans of crushed tomatoes. I like to use Muir Glen Fire Roasted. Taste for seasoning and add a bit of salt and pepper.

Boil spaghetti in salted water until al dente. Drain, reserving 1 cup of pasta water, and mix with the sauce. Stir to combine and add some of the pasta water if it is too thick.

Serve sprinkled with Parmesan cheese.
