Ingredients

  • 1 brown onion - diced
  • 2 garlic cloves - diced
  • 5 rashers bacon - diced
  • 1 red capsicum - diced into small cubes
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup double cream
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 300 grams spiral dried pasta
  • salt and pepper
  • parsley to serve
  • parmesan cheese to serve

Instructions

  1. Add a good lug of olive oil to a medium fry pan and put it on medium heat.

  2. Add the onion, garlic, bacon and capsicum to the pan and cook for 5-10 minutes, stirring regularly.

  3. Add the paprika, cayenne pepper, double cream, chicken stock and dried pasta to the fry pan and mix well. Put the lid on and simmer for 15 minutes or until the pasta is cooked al dente. 

  4. Check on it every 5 minutes or so and give it a stir to ensure nothing is sticking. You may need to add some more stock or water if the pasta absorbs it too quickly. 

  5. Serve immediately topped with parsley and parmesan cheese.
