1. Cook the pasta until al dente according to package instructions.
2. Place the bacon in a pan over a medium heat. Cooking the bacon from cold allows the fat to render before it browns so no extra oil is needed. Adding some water also helps the fat render and stops the pan being too dry.
3. Once the bacon has browned, add the cheese sauce and heat through with the peas, again, adding extra water if needed. Add the cooked pasta to the pan and stir through to combine before serving.
Cook’s note: No extra salt is needed as both the bacon and cheese sauce are seasoned.
