Ingredients

  • Roughly 200g pasta of your choice
  • 8 rashers streaky bacon (smoked or unsmoked)
  • 60g mature cheddar, grated
  • 1 tbsp double cream
  • 1 egg
  • Ground black pepper and salt

Method

  • STEP 1
    Put a pan of water on to boil. Cut the bacon into 1 cm pieces whilst waiting for the water to reach boiling point. Add the pasta, along with a few shakes of salt, to the boiling water, and cook according to packet instructions.
  • STEP 2
    Whilst the pasta is cooking, fry the bacon pieces until crispy.
  • STEP 3
    Prepare the sauce whilst the bacon and pasta are cooking. Add the grated cheese, egg, double cream and seasoning to a small bowl. Mix until combined.
  • STEP 4
    Once the pasta is cooked, drain it and return it to the pan. Add the cheesy sauce and stir - it will cook as it mixes with the pasta. Stir in the bacon pieces, then serve in warm bowls.
