My mum passed this onto me this week. I wasn’t so sure about it but I’m up for giving most things a try. I haven’t pointed it but I reckon it wouldn’t be too bad.

It probably took me about 20 minutes in total to prepare.

Serves 1

Ingredients

40g pasta

2 medallions of smoky bacon, chopped

1 large tablespoon of sweet chilli light philadelphia cream cheese

1 large tablespoon of light cream cheese

1 small onion, finely chopped

1/4 red pepper

1/4 orange pepper

1 clove of garlic, crushed

One cal cooking spray

 

 

Method

1. Boil the pasta according to the packet instructions, normally 8-10 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, heat a large frying pan and spray with the one cal spray. Add the bacon and fry for 4 minutes.

3. Add the peppers and onion and fry for a further 4 minutes. Add the garlic and fry for another minute or so.

4. Pour a little of the pasta water into the frying pan with the veg and bacon. Stir in both cream cheeses and blend in. Once the sauce has been heated, drain the pasta and add to the frying pan. Stir everything together.

I was going to say that you should add some chopped parsley but there’s no real need, there’s enough going on as it is.

 

Hope you enjoy.
