    Serves: 2 

    • 200g penne pasta
    • 150g streaky bacon, chopped
    • 50g sun-dried tomatoes, sliced
    • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
    • 30g butter
    • 300ml double cream
    • 50g Parmesan cheese, grated
    • 1 handful fresh basil, roughly chopped
    • cracked black pepper, to taste

    1. Pop your pasta in a pot of unsalted boiling water and cook until al dente. (The bacon, sun-dried tomatoes and Parmesan should provide enough saltiness.)
    2. Meanwhile, fry your bacon on medium heat until it begins to crisp, then add your tomatoes and fry a little longer until they soften. Drain excess fat if there's too much, add the garlic and fry for a minute or so longer, then add the butter and stir. Pour in your cream and Parmesan, then sprinkle in your basil. Stir to a smooth consistency and leave to simmer on a low heat.
    3. Add your pasta in with the sauce and toss until coated. Simmer for 5 minutes to soak up the sauce, stirring throughout. Add some black pepper to preference and serve with a basil bow on top.
