Tomato Bacon Pasta Sauce

Tomato Bacon Pasta Sauce

tomato bacon pasta sauce Tomato Bacon Pasta Sauce is a favourite of Marius and me. And it’s so simple to make!  The boys are still strongly in the “buttered noodles, hold the sauce, extra parmesan” phase for the last, well, their whole lives. I have hope though.

The recipe Tomato Bacon Pasta Sauce makes 3-4 quarts of sauce, enough to feed 12-15 adults. You’re not feeding 12-15 adults? Neither am I…but it’s the same amount of effort to make it this way and I can freeze it for quick meals later. I can share it with friends. I also used it as pizza sauce later in the week and it was ROCKING PIZZA SAUCE.

If you must, half the recipe, but I don’t suggest it!
