Its been a long day, you're tired and you really don't feel like cooking so you pick up the Mr. delivery menu and page through the variety of unappetising food choices. Let me stop you right there! Food does not need to take hours to cook in fact you can cook and eat this in the time you would spend waiting for Mr. delivery to arrive.
Lets get to it!
2 handfuls of wholewheat pasta
4 slices of bacon
1/3 punnet of mushrooms
1 teaspoon of chilli flakes
1 tablespoon of frozen peas
100g of chevin
1 small bag of fresh wild rocket
Salt and Pepper
Add a heap teaspoon of salt to two cups of boiling water and toss in your pasta. Leave to cook for about 8-10 minutes (over cooked pasta is not a thing! don't do it).
Slice bacon and fry in a seperate pan.
Add mushrooms and chilli flakes to the partially fried bacon and cook until the mushrooms have shrunk.
Toss in the peas at the last minute (they cook super fast).
Drain the pasta (keep 1/2 a cup of the pasta water aside) and add to the bacon and mushrooms.
Mix together and add the chevin, it will melt and coat everything in is deliciousness.
Add the reserved pasta water, this will ensure that your pasta is soft and silky.
Before serving sprinkle a small handful of rocket over and enjoy!
Bonus: if you made to much you can have it for lunch tomorrow. Winning!
Is Mr. Delivery there yet? Yip, thats what I thought.
