In a skillet over medium heat, brown the bacon and onions together. Start cooking your pasta. Then stir the sauce, paste, water (I only used 2 c. as I liked the sauce a little thicker) and seasonings into the bacon and onions. Simmer for 10 minutes then stir in the cream. Toss with the pasta and serve sprinkled with some parmesan.
