Skillet BLT

I love pasta, but my husband just likes it, so I don’t cook it much when cooking for dinner. But this is a recipe he can get behind, because, well, bacon. I’m not sure if it’s the broiled cheese on top that makes him like it, or the type of canned diced tomatoes, but I know he loves the bacon. This is a recipe I look forward to making when the scorching hot days of summer are coming to an end.

Fall is here, but it’s still warm outside. Luckily, we have very good AC, so we don’t worry about heating up the house by cooking. And, I have a brand new kitchen, after 4 years of living in an RV. I’ll have to write about this pretty soon. Maybe a video. 

Until then, I hope you enjoy this easy meal.

  • 1 " class="wprm-recipe-equipment-link" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Skillet


  • 4 ounces uncooked whole wheat linguine
  • 4 bacon strips cut into 1-1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley


  • Cook linguine according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain. Reserve 1 teaspoon of bacon drippings.
  • Preheat oven broiler for approximately 10 minutes.
  • Drain most of the liquid from the diced tomatoes, and in the drippings, saute tomato and garlic for 1-2 minutes or until heated through. Stir in the bacon, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  • Drain linguine; add to the skillet. Sprinkle with cheese and place the skillet under the broiler to melt the cheese to desired amount. Keep an eye on it as cheese usually melts within 30 seconds to a minute.
  • Make sure you have your oven mits and remove skillet from oven and sprinkle with parsely.
