Before you begin...
Get all your ingredients and equipment ready
Skim through these steps, then wash your fruit and veg
Note: Equipment and pan sizes vary. Make sure you cook food thoroughly (even if it takes you a little longer than 10 mins)
Now, let's get started!
Boil a kettle
Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of olive oil over a high heat
Add the bacon lardons to the pan and cook for 2 min or until starting to brown
Meanwhile, chop the cherry tomatoes in half
Once brown, add the halved cherry tomatoes and crumble 1/2  Knorr chicken stock cube into the pan
Cook for 2 min or until the tomatoes are starting to soften
Add the quick cook spaghetti to a pot of boiled water with a large pinch of salt, then bring to the boil over a high heat
Cook the spaghetti for 3-4 min or until cooked with a slight bite
Once done, drain the spaghetti, reserving a cup of the starchy pasta water
Once the tomatoes have softened, add the sun-dried tomato paste and tomato frito to the pan and cook for 2-3 min further or until thickened
Season with a generous pinch of pepper – this is your bacon & sun-dried tomato sauce
Once the pasta is done, add the drained spaghetti to the bacon & sun-dried tomato sauce and give everything a good mix up until the pasta is fully coated in the sauce
Tip: Add a splash of starchy pasta water if it's looking a little dry
Serve the bacon & sun-dried tomato pasta and top with the rocket
Drizzle the rocket with a little olive oil and sprinkle the grated Italian hard cheese all over
