If you can't find a package of cooked bacon pieces, buy a package of precooked bacon, and chop 8 slices.

For a healthier alternative, choose whole-grain pasta and turkey bacon, which is lower in saturated fat. Add more of your favorite vegetables like spinach and broccoli.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup pasta water.

Step 2

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion; sauté 2 minutes. Add bacon bits; sauté 2 minutes. Add tomato, garlic, and oregano; sauté 30 seconds. Remove from heat.

Step 3

Add pasta, reserved pasta water, salt, and pepper. Stir well, and cook 1 minute or until thoroughly heated and liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat; cover and let stand 3 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese.
