Peppered Bacon and Tomato Linguine

The photo is a stock photo... I couldn't find my camera. This dish is very good with a little grated parmesan cheese on top. Mind you, it is not low-cal considering you add some of the bacon grease to the pasta.... but it is so worth it.... delicious! (from Allrecipes.com)

1lb Peppered Bacon (diced)
1/4c Chopped Green Onion
1tbs Garlic (minced)
2cans Diced Tomatoes
2tsp Dried Basil
2tsp Salt
Ground Black Pepper (to taste)
