Step 1

Bring salted water to boil in steam-jacketed kettle or large stockpot on stovetop. Add pasta; cook 2 min. less than directed on package. Drain; chill.

Meanwhile, cook bacon in large rondeau over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan with slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Return same pan to medium heat. Add canola oil and onions; cook and stir 5-6 min. or until crisp-tender.
