If you are looking for an amazing sauce this is it, everything is better with bacon, which we all know and that holds true to this Spicy bacon pasta sauce.
I went to the pantry to get my canned tomatoes to make my normal tomato sauce but was surprised to see I had a can of tomato sauce instead of whole tomatoes. I already had raviolis planned for dinner so I need to come up with another sauce for them. I luckily had bacon in my fridge (yes this pregnant woman cant get enough bacon! YUM) I swear this sauce is 100 times better than any sauce I have had at any Italian restaurant! It isn’t the healthiest sauce since you are cooking the onions right in the bacon fat. But boy is it yummy!
