Spaghetti With Green Tomato-Bacon Sauce

6 slices thick-cut bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 pound green tomatoes, cored and cut into 1/4-inch dice
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 cup dry white wine
2 tablespoons minced pepperoncini
1/2 pound cappelini pasta
2/3 cup freshly grated pecorino Romano cheese
1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley, plus more for garnish
Freshly ground black pepper


In a 12-inch skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to a plate lined with paper towels. Drain and reserve 1 tablespoon bacon fat. Add the olive oil to the pan. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, 60 seconds.


Raise the heat to medium high. Add the tomatoes, salt and red pepper flakes. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes soften and start to turn golden brown, about 7 minutes. Add the wine and pepperoncini and cook until the some of the liquid evaporates and the tomatoes are a bit saucy.

Meanwhile, cook the pasta in salted boiling water according to the package directions until al dente. Reserve 1/2 cup of pasta water, then drain the pasta.

Put the drained pasta back into the pot and add the cooked tomatoes, cheese, 1/2 cup parsley and cooked bacon. Toss until combined, adding reserved pasta water to moisten, if necessary. Taste and season with additional salt and pepper.

Divide the pasta among warm plates, sprinkle with additional parsley and serve immediately.

Green Tomato Relish

30 small green cherry tomatoes ( need 7-8 cups of tomato chunks before chopping. I used yellow pear heirloom tomatoes.)
2 sweet peppers any color (red/yellow look nice. about 4 cups chunks pre chopping)


1 large/2 medium onions ( about 1-1.5 cups chunks pre chopping.)
1-3 hot peppers ( depends how much heat you want. I used 1 large jalapeno pepper.)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup vinegar ( I used cider vinegar.)
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper

Wash all vegetables. Cut vegs in chunks. Cut tomatoes in half. Put veg chunks in blender with enough water so they float. Pulse 5-6 times, and pour into a colander. You want a medium to fine size chop. Chop all vegs in blender and pour into a colander to drain, pressing down on vegs with the back of a spoon to get more water out. Then let drain at least one hour. Put drained vegs and sugar, vinegar and seasonings into a non aluminum pot. Bring contents to a boil, stirring frequently. When it reaches a boil, turn heat to medium and simmer 10 minutes. Cool, and put into containers. Will keep for months in the refrigerator. You can also can this in sterile jars, but I don't. I give this as gifts, It is good on hot dogs, hamburgers, sandwiches, and mixed with mayonnaise makes a good dressing for potato salad and deviled eggs. I use the blender filled with veg and pulse.

I recently made this recipe for Green Tomato Chili that was originally posted by Copasetic from OH. It was a big hit.


1 lb. ground beef


2 med. onions chopped
2 1/2 cups peppers, sweet and hot mixed to you preference, chopped
1 Tbsp minced garlic
2 cups diced red tomatoes
1 1/2 cups chopped green tomatoes
1 Tbsp chili powder
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp oregano
1 tsp coriander


Brown ground beef and then drain and remove from pan. Set aside. Put a tbsp or two of fat back in pan and add the onions and peppers, and saute until they are starting to soften. Add the garlic, chili powder, cumin, and coriander and saute 1 minute. Add the green and red tomatoes, the meat, oregano, and a cup or two of water, optional. Simmer briskly, stirring often, until all the veggies are tender, about 1/2 hour.

This can also be made with 1 lb of bite size beef stew meat. Leave the beef in the pan when you add the veggies and cook for 1 1/2 to two hours, until the beef is tender.


Servings: 6-8
Prep time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 45 minutes to 2 hours
