Vegetable-Bacon Noodle Toss

1/2 (16-oz.) package uncooked wide egg noodles
4 bacon slices
1/2 cup green onion, chopped
2 yellow squash, cut in half lengthwise and sliced
1 zucchini, cut in half lengthwise and sliced
2 medium tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1/2 cup light balsamic vinaigrette
2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1. Prepare egg noodles according to package directions; drain noodles, and keep warm.

2. 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.

3. Sauté green onions, 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.
