serves four

32 oz of canned tomatoes, hand-crushed and seeds removed
8 garlic cloves, sliced thin
10 basil leaves, hand-torn to small pieces
2 oz olive oil
1 oz extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
8 oz. bacon
1 lb. dry spaghetti pasta

In a large pot, heat up the olive oil and brown the garlic. Add tomatoes and bring to a simmer. Cook for 20 minutes. Add salt and pepper. Fold in the basil and extra virgin olive oil and set aside. Place bacon in baking trays and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until crisp. Remove bacon from the pan and transfer to some paper towel to drain the fat. Bring a large pot of water to boil with a few pinches of salt. Drop the spaghetti in the pot and boil until al dente. Drain the pasta and transfer to a large serving bowl. Pour the warm pomodoro sauce over and crumble the bacon on top.
