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
olive oil
freshly ground pepper

large saucepan
frying pan
garlic crusher
cooking scissors
cheese grater
wooden spoon
  1. Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil and cook the pasta following the packets instructions for best cooking results.
  2. 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.
  3. Once the pasta is ready, drain and stir in the crème fraiche,  grated Parmesan, and some freshly ground pepper.
  4. 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.
