Shopping Tips

There are many healthier bacon choices these days. They’re uncured with no nitrates. I like Oscar Mayer Select Natural. Most supermarkets carry it. Another I like is Applegate Farms Natural Sunday Bacon. Many supermarkets carry this brand. I bought it at Vons/Safeway and Whole Foods. Here’s the link to their website:http://www.applegate.com/products/natural-sunday-bacon
I used Classico Light Alfredo Sauce for this recipe. It’s shelf-stable and found in the pasta sauce aisle. There are other brands available if you can’t find this one.
