Bacon, courgette & caper one-pot pasta
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 2
Combine tagliatelle with bacon, courgette and capers to make this speedy dinner for two. A balanced meal in 25 minutes, it's a brilliant choice for busy days
- STEP 1
Put the lardons in a pan and fry over a medium heat for 5 mins until crisp and golden. Remove from the pan and pour off any fat.
- STEP 2
Heat the oil in the same pan and fry the courgette and garlic for 6-8 mins until lightly golden and most of the water has evaporated. Add the tagliatelle and pour in 400ml water. Stir until the pasta nests unravel, then cook uncovered for 7-9 mins, stirring frequently, until the pasta is al dente. Stir in the capers, lemon zest and juice, pecorino and lardons, adding a splash more water if it looks a little dry. Stir for a few seconds until the cheese starts to melt. Fold in the rocket until just starting to wilt, then serve.
