I fancy pasta but I dunno what. Do you know anything simple to do with bacon that involves pasta (not a Carbonara)?

    make a spicy tomato sauce to go with the bacon instead or maybe pesto. this is sposed to be more healthy than creamy carbonara/cheesy sauces. you can use peppers, tomatoes etc.

    I tend to use pancetta for this, but bacon works too. Dice the bacon and fry until crispy. Cook the pasta of your choice (I prefer linguini) and mix the two with lashings of garlic infused olive oil - or if you haven't got that, fry some cloves of garlic with the bacon to infuse the flavour and add olive oil to that at the end. Takes me about 10 minutes to do including the pasta cooking time.
