One Pot Bacon & Brie Pasta

Because I work full-time, I find it hard to make balanced meals and quickly. I have to plan ahead, do the whole meal plan thing (have you seen our family meal plans?), and I have to work quickly. As soon as I’m home. It’s time to cook.
I’ve seen the one-pot pasta dishes going round for quite a while. Martha Stewart started that craze off! So I finally got round to making our own. When I had a pack of Brie to use up, along with some leftover bacon. 
And so this oozy monster was born. 


Serves two
Two thirds of a pack of spaghetti or linguine
Five rashers of bacon, chopped.
A block of brie, rind removed. 
A jar of sundried tomatoes, chopped 
A little oil from the sundried tomatoes 
Four large tomatoes, chopped
Four cloves of garlic crushed.
A big handful of basil. 
A handful of Parmesan.
Half a teaspoon of chilli flakes.
A pinch of sea salt.
And a good few twists of black pepper.
Four cups of water.


In a large pan, fry off your bacon, until crispy. 
Snap your spaghetti or linguine in half. Pop into the pan with your tomatoes, sundried tomatoes, basil, garlic, chilli and seasoning. Add your water.
Cook until pasta is al dente and most of the liquid has absorbed.
Add chunks of brie and the Parmesan, and stir until creamy and unctuous (I sound like Nigella). 
Taste and season if needed. 
Serve with extra Parmesan and some basil. 
And feel happy that you’ve only a big pan and a chopping board to wash up afterwards.
Feel even happier if you can get your other half to wash up instead.

    I don't know if I like Brie but I do like the idea of cooking everything in one big pan. I can't be bothered with loads of washing up at the moment!
