Bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to the boil. Cook pasta in boiling water for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
Place bacon in a large, deep frying pan. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.
Heat olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Saute garlic, basil and oregano in oil for 1 minute. Stir in tomatoes and spring onions and saute for 3 minutes. Add bacon, single cream, Parmesan cheese and Monterey Jack cheese. Cook until cheese is just melted. Stir in prawns and cook until heated through, about 2 minutes.
Serve sauce over pasta and sprinkle with pine nuts.
Fantastic easy recipe. Couldn't find Monterey Jack cheese so just trade don't it for Cheddar. Added garlic bread to finish and a wee bit of Parmesan to top! Delish! Will definitely be making again! - 04 Dec 2016
