Pasta with bacon, garlic and Parmesan

Under R70 • Serves 4

Preparation time: 5 minutes • Cooking time: 8 minutes

• 300g spaghetti

• 250g diced bacon

• 100g butter

• 30ml olive oil

• 3 cloves garlic, chopped

• 125ml grated Parmesan or pecorino

• freshly ground black pepper

• a pinch of dried chilli (optional)

1 Bring a pot of salted water to the boil and cook the spaghetti until al dente (usually about 8 minutes).

2 Meanwhile, fry the bacon in the butter and olive oil in a large pan until crispy. Stir in the garlic and turn off the heat. The garlic must cook without burning or discolouring, otherwise, it becomes bitter.

3 Pour the cooked, still moist spaghetti into the pan mixture and stir through so that the butter coats the pasta. Season to taste with black pepper (the bacon and butter are already salty) and half of the cheese. Serve with the rest of the cheese and a pinch of dried chilli if desired.
