Here’s what you’ll need:
6 oz bacon (we use turkey bacon) cut into thin strips (I use meat scissors)
1 onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup white wine, or you can use chicken broth instead
1 – 15 oz can crushed tomatoes
1/2 tsp ground thyme
salt and pepper
whole wheat spaghetti noodles, about 1 lb or so
Heat the oil in a fying pan; add the bacon and onion and cook over medium heat for about ten minutes, until they begin to brown.
Cover and simmer gently for 10-15 minutes. Meanwhile, add salt to the boiling water, and cook the pasta.
* Turkey bacon often goes on sale near us for $1.00/pkg, making this a great choice for a healthy and inexpensive meal. Also, you may forego white spaghetti and use wheat, or do a combination of the two.
