Start cooking the pasta. Add half of the tomatoes, the onion and deseeded dried chilli to the frying pan.
4
When the bacon shrinks, add the remaining tomatoes and fry further.
5
Add two ladles of pasta water and mix to emulsify.

Tips & Note

●The bacon oil is the key to the sauce, so keep frying to just before the bacon starts to burn
●The pasta sauce is also important for seasoning. Always use 1-1.5% salt to the amount of water. Emulsify the oil and water nicely to get a lovely pasta dish.
