The secret to this dish is cooking your linguine in the same pan as you've fried your bacon, before adding in a measured amount of stock. You then throw in your raw ingredients: garlic, cherry tomatoes, cheese and herbs, to cook as one; marrying together to form perfectly cooked pasta and a silky smooth sauce.

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 One Pot Bacon Pasta

Boil a kettle

Chop the bacon finely 

Heat a large, dry pan with a lid over a medium heat 

Once hot, add the bacon and cook for 3-5 min until crispy 

2 One Pot Bacon Pasta

Add 700ml [1.4L] boiled water to the bacon and crumble in the stock cube[s]

Whisk to dissolve the stock cube[s] and bring to the boil

3 One Pot Bacon Pasta

Meanwhile, chop the cherry tomatoes in half

Grate the cheddar

Peel and finely slice the garlic

Peel and slice the onion[s] finely

 

4 One Pot Bacon Pasta

Once the stock is boiling, reduce the heat to medium and add the linguine (break the linguine in half if it doesn't fit)

Add the tomatoes, onion, garlic, dried oregano, chilli flakes (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) and half the grated cheddar to the pan

5 One Pot Bacon Pasta

Add 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] olive oil, 1 tsp [2 tsp] sugar and 1 tsp [2 tsp] pepper to the pot

Cover with a lid and cook for 5 min

6 One Pot Bacon Pasta

After 5 min, remove the lid, and stir continuously until the pasta is cooked and a sauce has formed (add more water if it looks too dry)

Tip: stirring the sauce releases the starch from the pasta making it naturally creamier

7 One Pot Bacon Pasta

Meanwhile, chop the basil finely, including the stalks
