Bacon & Pork Aglio Olio

Remember Pasta Evolution?

Well, this not for the faint-hearted; it’s incredibly extravagant and unforgivably heart-stopping. Out from the fat rendered from bacon, an Aglio Olio dish is born.

  1. Same old drill: Set your pasta boiling away in a pot.
  2. Using a small knob of butter, get the bacon into a skillet.
  3. Render the fat out before tossing in a generous amount of minced garlic, chilli, dried basil and oregano.
  4. Toss in sliced pork, which has been marinated with salt and pepper.
  5. When the pasta is done, drain and add to the skillet. Toss about, coating every strand of spaghetti well.
  6. Grate Parmesan or Cheddar directly on and mix throughly.
  7. Serve with fresh basil.
