Ingredients
  • Kale
  • Pasta
  • Bacon
  • Parmesan
  • Parsley
  • Courgette
  • Garlic
  • Red onion

This is one of the tastiest pastas you'll ever eat and it'll only take you about 10 minutes to cook.

The key is to buy really good quality bacon, so it doesn't leak out water and doesn't dilute the smoky flavour.

The salty taste from the bacon and the parmesan will mix beautifully with the kale and courgettes.

Once you learn this recipe there will be no looking back. An absolute cracker...

Instructions

Step 1

Invest in good bacon and if you're not a fan of mushrooms you could always add veg like asparagus or green beans.

Step 6

Pop the pasta in to cook. I used really thin spaghetti as it works with the simplicity of this dish and cooks in no time.

Step 7

You want some nice colour on the bacon and mushrooms without anything burning.

I often make two portions at once when cooking this dish, as it keeps well and is perfect to heat up for lunch or dinner the next day.

Whip out the pans and get cooking. You'll love it.
