Spaghetti and breadcrumbs

I made this for dinner the other night! Both hubby and I liked it. The kids were both sick and didn't eat anyfood (they had the flu).

Spaghetti and breadcrumbs

1 pound spaghetti (or any pasta shape)
4 tbspns olive oil
3 tsps minced garlic (I used the already minced garlic in the jar and used heaping spoons)
1 cup breadcrumbs
1 cup fresh parsley (I used dry because I didn't have enough fresh about 1 tbsp)
4 tbsn parmesan cheese
5 slices cooked bacon crumbled.
1/2 tsp pepper or to your taste
3 tbsn lemon juice

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until done; drain. In a separate skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat and add garlic and cooked bacon and cook for about 2 minutes; stir constantly. Stir in breadcrumbs and turn off heat. Add parsley, parmesan cheese and black ground pepper; mix together. Mix this mixture with hot pasta and add lemon juice.

I added more lemon juice and crushed red pepper flakes at the table on mine (hubby doesn't like the crushed pepper flakes).
