Before you start

Keep the serving dishes in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Put a colander in the sink to drain the cooked pasta so that it will be ready when needed.


  1. Chop the bacon and sauté the pieces in a non-stick pan over medium heat until they are crispy, then drain them on a paper towel.
  2. Finely slice the onion, mince the chili pepper and add them to the pan. Add the oil and cook over medium heat about 5 min until the onion is soft and translucent. Add the bacon.
  3. To save time, the rest of the sauce preparation and pasta cooking can be done at the same time. Cook the pasta.
  4. Meanwhile, add the diced tomatoes to the pan, bring to a boil, reduce the heat to medium, cover, and cook about 10 min (same amount of time as the spaghetti).
  5. Drain the spaghetti, reserving the required amount of pasta cooking water. Pour the spaghetti into the pan, add the reserved cooking water, sprinkle with grated Romano and mix well. Serve in the warmed dishes.


This sauce can be made up to 7 days ahead, refrigerated, then reheated while you cook the pasta.
