Here’s a super simple recipe for a quick dinner. Five ingredients and it’ll be ready in less than 20 minutes.

This should serve four. I ate it all. I have a problem saying no to delicious pasta.

What you need:

1 pound of your favorite pasta
4-6 slices of bacon, chopped
2 Handfuls of cherry tomatoes
2-3 cloves of garlic
1 Handful of fresh basil

Start a big pot of water to boil. Should take about 10 minutes to boil. Add salt to the boiling water. Then add noodles.

Cut bacon and add to a separate frying pan over medium heat.

After 5 minutes, add tomatoes to bacon. Once the bacon looks finished, add two cloves of finely chopped garlic.

Pasta should be done after 10 minutes. Drain and add pasta to bacon with ripped leaves of fresh pasta.

Add some freshly ground pepper and a dash of crushed red pepper for a little extra zip.

It’s that easy! The bacon fat and exploded tomatoes make their own sauce that clings to the noodles.

Buon appetito.
