Cheesy Bacon Spaghetti

Submitted by: BADGER97


Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    16 oz. whole wheat spaghetti
    2-3 strips bacon, or 6 oz pancetta
    1 cup grated parmesan
    1 T olive oil

Directions

Dice bacon/pancetta. Add olive oil to frying pan. Cook bacon until crisp. Cook spaghetti until al dente. Reserve 1 cup of the cooking water before draining the spaghetti. Toss bacon (complete with fat) into spaghetti. Use the heat of the spaghetti to melt the cheese and use about 1/4 cup of reserved pasta water to help combine the ingredients even more. You'll have six servings of a very flavorful, albeit rich dinner.
