Ingredients

  • 500g pack of spaghetti
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 200g pancetta , diced
  • 80g butter , softened
  • 2 tsp yeast extract
  • 50g cheddar , grated
  • grated parmesan , to serve

Method

  • STEP 1

    Bring a large pan of water to the boil and add the spaghetti. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a frying pan and cook the pancetta for 8-10 mins until crispy.

  • STEP 2

    Once the pasta is cooked, drain, reserving a little pasta water. Tip the spaghetti back into the pan with the pasta water and add the pancetta with the fat from the pan, the butter, yeast extract and cheeses. Use tongs to coat the spaghetti in the sauce and season with a little pepper. Taste and add a little more yeast extract, if you like. Serve in bowls with extra Parmesan sprinkled over.
