For a vegetarian version of this dish, omit the bacon, and sauté the chopped onion in 2 tsp. olive oil.
1/2 (16-oz.) package uncooked wide egg noodles
4 bacon slices
1/2 small onion, chopped
2 yellow squash, cut in half lengthwise and sliced
1 zucchini, cut in half lengthwise and sliced

How to Make It
Prepare egg noodles according to package directions; drain noodles, and keep warm.
Cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until crisp; remove bacon, and drain on paper towels, reserving 2 tsp. drippings in a small bowl. Discard remaining drippings. Wipe skillet clean with a paper towel. Crumble bacon.
Sauté chopped onion in hot reserved drippings over medium-high heat 5 minutes or until tender. Add squash, zucchini, and tomatoes; sauté 6 minutes or until squash and zucchini are crisp-tender. Add egg noodles, bacon, vinaigrette, and next 3 ingredients, stirring until well blended. Cook, stirring constantly, until thoroughly heated. Serve immediately. Garnish, if desired.

I made this dish using chicken instead of bacon. I was cooking for myself and used less pasta and equal amounts of squash and zucchini. I used 3/4 cup italian dressing and 1 TBS balsamic and this made a delicious meal. I will make my version again.
