- 250 g pack matured smokey bacon
- Few sprigs fresh sage
- 2-3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
- For serving
- Crack of black pepper and shavings of Parmesan
Place a pan over a medium to high heat.
Chop bacon into small pieces and add to the hot pan. Fry until crisp and golden, then drain on kitchen paper.
In the reserved bacon oil, briefly fry a few sprigs fresh sage, along with 2–3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced.
Toss, together with the bacon, with warm strands of al dente spaghetti, adding a few spoonfuls of the bacon-and-sage oil to coat the pasta.
Serve warm with a crack of black pepper and shavings of Parmesan.
