Recipe By: Yukari Elliott (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/31)
Serves 2 Prep: 5 min Cook: 15 min

Ingredients

Spaghetti 70g
Onion 1
Mushrooms 100g
Bacon rashers 4
Garlic 1 clove
Olive oil 2 tbsp
Grated cheddar cheese 50g
Pasta water 100ml
Basil leaves 20
Pepper as required

Method

1
Break the spaghetti into quarter, then put in a bag and smash to smaller pieces.
2
Cook the broken pasta in boiling salted water. Keep the pasta water when it's cooked for later use.
3
Finely chop the onion, garlic and mushrooms. Slice the bacon to 5mm strips.
4
Put the olive oil in a deep pan and fry the bacon strips on high heat.
5
Add the cooked pasta and 100ml pasta water to Step 4. Bring to the boil on high heat and add the cheese.
6
Mix with a wooden spoon and adjust to taste with the salt. Keep stirring until the liquid evaporates.
7
Add the finely chopped basil (leave one or two leaves aside) and mix in. Turn the heat off and transfer to a serving dish.
8
Sprinkle ground pepper over the top and garnish with the basil leaves.

Tips & Note

●It's unlikely you'll need extra salt because the bacon, cheese and pasta water has enough salt, but adjust to how you like it.
