Bacon & Tomato Fusilli

Bacon & Tomato Fusilli

Sometimes you want a pasta but not the old standby spaghetti & meatball kind… I love to experiment with all those different types of pasta found in the pasta aisle – combining sauces that will fit each little noodle to a Tee! This pasta is a wonderful sauce of bacon & pancetta with diced tomatoes served over Fusilli. Warm, comforting and absolutely delicious…

Bacon & Tomato Fusilli
10 slices bacon, chopped
4 oz package diced Pancetta
1 Spanish onion, diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup white wine
2 – 14.5 oz cans seasoned diced tomatoes
salt & pepper
Dried parsley, basil & oregano
16 oz package Fusilli Pasta
1/2 cup shaved Parmesan

Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Meanwhile, in a medium sauté pan, cook the bacon for five minutes. Add the diced Pancetta and cook an additional 3 minutes. When the water comes to a boil, prepare the Fusilli pasta as package directs. Reserve one cup of pasta broth before draining; set aside. To the bacon and pancetta add the diced onions and minced garlic. Continue to cook 8 minutes. Stirring frequently. Stir in the white wine; scraping the bottom of the pan to incorporate all those lovely bits. Pour in the diced tomatoes and the cup of pasta broth; stir to combine. Lower the temperature and simmer for a minimum of 10 minutes. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary (salt, pepper, dried parsley, oregano & basil). If you use Basil & Garlic Seasoned Diced Tomatoes then additional seasonings may not be necessary. 

Scoop the Bacon & Tomato sauce over the hot Fusilli and sprinkle with fresh shaved Parmesan and serve.

  1. I recently tried a dark chocolate candy bar with bacon in it. It wasn’t bad, but I really couldn’t decide if the crunch part tasted like bacon or not… But looking at this one, I think the bacon will fully come across as… bacon. Thanks for sharing at Fiesta Friday!

    1. It does! And if more bacon was added to that chocolate candy bar, I bet you would have tasted it – I’ve had chocolate covered bacon – SWOON – Thanks for visiting 🙂 🙂


      1. You and me both. We have a small Walmart and two small locals. Will stock up next week when I visit my family in Houston 🙂 but I have ordered online from
