Oh this was great! I probably used a little more bacon (I had some leftover that was already cooked/crumbled) and didn't measure the broccoli just used 2-3 heads. Didn't have linguinin so used fettucini and cooked the broccoli in the spaghetti sauce not the pasta water. Used a couple tablespoons butter to cook the onion/garlic since I had already cooked the bacon and added the garlic when the onion was almost done to avoid scorching.

This was disappointing. Couldn't taste the broccoli or bacon and it tasted almost like spaghetti with spaghetti sauce. Won't bother to make again.

Excellent recipe...I do a similar dish without tomato sauce... Instead I use 1 package of cream cheese and 3 ozs. of fresh cream which I mix together and add to the pasta once the broccoli is cooked... Other than that the rest is the same recipe...Excellent taste!

I recieved this recipe in my inbox today and had to comment. My best friend makes the same thing except she uses the ragu alfredo sauce instead and it is soooooo yummy!! Im going to try with the spaghetti sauce tonight though that sounds just as good!

I received this in my e-mail this morning and went to the store after work to get the ingredients. My husband and I loved this dish. It's super easy and it has terrific flavor. I added some red pepper flakes to the sauce per one suggestion below. It was delicious and I will definitely make this again.

Love this recipe! I used farfalle (bowtie) pasta. The broccoli was cooked to perfection with the pasta. The taste of the bacon onions and spaghetti sauce was unbelievably delicious! I will definitely be making this again soon.
