This is a firm favourite in our tent. It's easy peasy and completely scrummy!
4 mugs of pasta any shape or style
2-3 tablespoons of crème fraiche
1 mug of freshly grated parmesan
2 cloves of garlic minced
100g/ 3 1/2oz ready to cook smoked pancetta slices or smoked streaky bacon cut into strips
freshly ground pepper
- Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil and cook the pasta following the packets instructions for best cooking results.
- Heat up a swirl of oil in the frying pan, add the pancetta and garlic. Cook for 5-10 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent anything getting too crisp, especially the garlic. Remove from the heat.
- Once the pasta is ready, drain and stir in the crème fraiche, grated Parmesan, and some freshly ground pepper.
- Fold the pancetta and garlic into the pasta, making sure any oil that is left in the frying pan is also included as it holds lots of flavour. Serve immediately.
