Pasta with Chilli and Bacon



Mid week, long day in the office, it is great to get home and to be able to knock something out that will be rushed but nice. This is a very quick recipe to prepare but nonetheless really lovely. Up to the moment right before you add the mascarpone it looks like any other pasta dish. The mascarpone adds creaminess. Really lovely. During the week I use a lot of dried pasta as there is not much time to prepare my own. If you have your own homemade pasta just adjust the cooking time.

450g spaghetti

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 red chillies, seeded and chopped

6 rashers of bacon, rind removed, chopped

¾ cup mascarpone

½ cup shredded fresh basil

Cracked black pepper

Parmesan cheese to serve

Boil the pasta according to the instructions in the packet. While the pasta is cooking, heat frying pan over medium high heat. Add the olive oil, chillies and bacon and cook for another 4 minutes, until the bacon is crisp.

Drain the pasta and return it to the hot saucepan. Place over low heat and add the chilli and bacon mixture together with the mascarpone, basil and pepper. Mix to combine. Serve with grated parmesan cheese.
