Instructions: Boil large saucepan of water. Meanwhile, cook bacon with oil on low heat until crispy. Add noodles to water, boil 8 minutes. Dump mac. into 8 inch glass casserole dish. Drizzle crushed tomatoes, with minced garlic, onto mac, covering. Drop crushed up bacon on top, then shredded cheese.
