Peppered Bacon and Tomato Linguine

I feel like we eat pasta A LOT. But this one is a little different, and has bacon in it, which Kevin will always eat:) It is pretty tasty.

1/2 pound peppered bacon, diced
2 tablespoons chopped green onion
2 teaspoons minced garlic-or a bit more, in my case!!
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes-I use the garlic and onion diced tomatoes
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon salt
ground black pepper to taste
1 (16 ounce) package linguine pasta
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese-I use more, duh.

Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, reserving drippings, and set aside.

Saute green onion and garlic in bacon drippings over medium heat for one minute. Stir in tomatoes, basil, salt and ground black pepper; simmer for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.

Toss hot pasta with sauce and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
