First, I fried three pieces of bacon, then placed them on a plate with a paper towel to drain.
With the bacon grease, I sauteed 1/2 of a small sweet onion and two cloves of garlic, both finely diced.
After the onion and garlic mix was starting to soften and caramelize...
I added a half of a pint of finely diced Roma tomatoes.
I simmered for 30 minutes with the lid on the soften the tomatoes. Then, I cracked the lid to let off some steam and allow the sauce to reduce for 30 more minutes. Then I added a splash of low fat half and half and a pinch of oregano and basil, added the crumbled bacon, and let the mixture come back to temperature.
Then I mixed in some al dente spaghetti, served in a bowl, and topped with some fresh grated Parmesan cheese.
Hope loved this lunchtime surprise. This was a nice, light, summer treat with sugar sweet Roma tomatoes. You should try making this with your next batch of fresh picked tomatoes.
