Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Amatriciana Spaghetti With Bacon

Boil a kettle

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium heat

Once hot, add the bacon lardons and cook for 8 min, stirring frequently, or until golden and crispy

2 Amatriciana Spaghetti With Bacon

While the bacon lardons are cooking, peel and finely dice the brown onion[s]

Peel and finely slice (don't chop) the garlic

Slice the San Marzanino tomatoes in half

3 Amatriciana Spaghetti With Bacon

Once the lardons are crispy, transfer them to a plate and return the pan (and oil!) to a medium heat

Add the diced onion with a pinch of salt and cook for 6-7 min or until softened

Dissolve the tomato paste and 1/2 [1] Knorr chicken stock cube in 200ml [300ml] boiled water – this is your tomato stock

4 Amatriciana Spaghetti With Bacon

Once the onion has softened, add the sliced tomatoes, garlic, dried oregano and chilli flakes (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) to the pan and cook for 4-5 min further or until the tomatoes have broken down into a sauce

Once broken down, add the tomato stock with a pinch of sugar and cook for 3-4 min or until the sauce has thickened

5 Amatriciana Spaghetti With Bacon

Meanwhile, add the spaghetti to a pot of boiled water with a generous pinch of salt, bring to the boil over a high heat and cook for 8-10 min or until cooked with a slight bite

Once cooked, drain and reserve a cup of the starchy cooking water

6 Amatriciana Spaghetti With Bacon

While the pasta is cooking, chop the basil finely, including the stalks

7 Amatriciana Spaghetti With Bacon

Add the drained spaghetti to the sauce with half the chopped basil (save the rest for garnish) and half the crispy lardons and give everything a good mix up until the sauce coats the pasta – this is your Amatriciana spaghetti

Tip: Add a splash of starchy cooking water if it's looking a little dry
