Pasta Bacon Cheese

If you are in a hurry and stuck for fresh ideas, this quick and delicious pasta dish can save the day. Using just a handful of ingredients you can build a one plate meal with complex flavour and texture.

You can balance the ingredients to your taste, but I encourage you pick your ingredients in pairs and try to combine opposite extremes. In this recipe for example, I offset the crispness & saltiness of the bacon with the grassy sweetness of spinach. Similarily I combine the large warm slivers of soft mozerella with a sharp tasting grated romano. Go nuts.

Add your favourite pasta and you can prep this meal on the fly and you should be able to go from zero to plate in 15 minutes or less.

Use it as a template and let your imagination run wild. Be patient and experiment.
