    • Seasonings like salt, pepper, paprika , Chili

    Then season. Be careful with the salt. Because the bacon is already quite salty. If you like you can season with other seasonings you like. But I liked it simple in this dish because the bacon is a strong flavour

    Then stir the bacon back into the sauce. You can boil the pasta during you cook the sauce or you can prepare the sauce easy in the morning and boil the pasta whenever you are ready to eat.

  • Step 6/6

    Don’t rinse the pasta when they are cooked. So the starch stays on them. It keeps the sauce on them. I hope you enjoy it and let me know when you give it a go ♥️
