Smokey Bacon Spaghetti

 A super simple and budget friendly meal taken from an old BBC good food magazine

Serves 4

Ingredients 

400g spaghetti

1 tbsp olive oil

120g smoked streaky bacon,sliced into matchsticks

1 onion, finely chopped

1 garlic clove, finely chopped

2 tsp sweet smoked paprika

2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes

 Method

  1. Bring a large pan of water to the boil and cook the Spaghetti following pack instructions. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan and cook the bacon for 3-4 mins until just starting to crisp. Stir in the onion and cook for another 3-4 mins, then add the garlic and smoked paprika, and cook for 1 min more.
  2. Pour in the chopped tomatoes, bring to the boil and bubble for about 5 mins until thickened, stirring every so often to stop it catching on the bottom. Drain the pasta and toss with the sauce. Serve with Parmesan (optional)

Enjoy!
