Ingredients

  • 10.5oz / 300g Penne Pasta
  • 1 1/4 cups / 300ml Heavy/Double Cream
  • 2 tbsp Unsalted Butter
  • 5oz / 150g Streaky Bacon, chopped
  • 1/2 cup / 35g Parmesan, grated (plus extra to serve)
  • 3/4 cup / 75g Sundried Tomato, sliced
  • 1 tsp Garlic, minced

Instructions

  • Pop your pasta in a pot of boiling water and cook until al dente. Retain a cup of starchy pasta water.
  • Meanwhile, fry your bacon over medium heat until it begins to crisp. Drain excess fat/oil if there's too much, then add your garlic & sun dried tomatoes and fry for a minute or so longer. Add your Butter and stir until melted.
  • Stir in your cream and allow to simmer on a low/medium heat. When it just starts to thicken add in your parmesan, basil and seasoning to taste.
  • Once the sauce has fully thickened add your pasta and toss until coated. Simmer for a few minutes to soak up the sauce, stirring throughout and using your pasta water to thin out if it becomes too thick and gloopy.
  • Serve with and extra sprinkle of parmesan and basil!
