Splendid Seafood: Linguine Vegas Style

Monday, good to! Good Morning everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I spent it shopping at goodwill, Joann's, and resale stores. Then I mowed my yard, raked leaves, and managed to put on a HUGE pot of veggie soup! YUM!! So I really wanted to share a recipe that I have been stashing for a while with you all...Enjoy!

1 lb linguine pasta
4 slices bacon, cut crosswise in thin strips
1 jar (12 oz) white clam sauce
Grated peel of 1 lemon
