Tomato Bacon Pasta


This is a something that I just threw together one day when I didn’t know what else to make, and I didn’t have a lot in the pantry/fridge. It was an instant hit with Hubby (it’s got bacon and pasta. Nuff said).

It goes together really quickly, and freezes well.

Serves 4-6


  • 250g bacon, diced (either pre-diced or DIY)
  • 440g can diced tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste (ish – this is an approximate measurement)
  • 1 brown onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • herbs, salt & pepper as per preference


  1. Oil pan and cook onions until translucent. Add garlic and bacon and cook until bacon is browned.
  2. Add tinned tomatoes and tomato paste, and herbs/salt & pepper. Cook for a few minutes, then serve with your choice of pasta.

I use 1 full packet of dry pasta to go with this (500g packet), and freeze pasta & sauce in single serve containers.

  1. People forget how tasty simplicity can be! They rather buy the ready made sauces without even knowing what is really inside! Make food yourself, freeze ahead and it will always be ready at your convenience! Will keep close eyes on your blog for future tips and uses 🙂 All the best!
