Fabulous Fettuccine Recipe


  • 1⁄2 lb. bacon, diced
  • 3 T. olive oil
  • 2 large onions, chopped
  • 2 cans (141⁄2 oz. each) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 t. dried tarragon
  • 1⁄2 t. salt
  • 1⁄4 t. pepper
  • 1⁄8 t. cayenne pepper
  • 1 lb. fettuccine
  • 1⁄4 cup minced fresh parsley
  • Shredded Parmesan cheese


In a skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain grease. Drain skillet, reserving 1 T. drippings. Add olive oil and onions to drippings. Saute until onions are tender, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes and garlic; simmer uncovered for about 5 minutes. Stir in tarragon, salt, pepper and cayenne; cover and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, cook fettuccine according to package directions. Add parsley to the tomato mixture; simmer 5 minutes longer. Stir in bacon. Drain fettuccine; top with tomato mixture. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Yield: 4-6 servings.
