Budget Cooking /Super smoky bacon & tomato spaghetti


  1. 400g spaghetti
  2. 1 tbsp olive oil
  3. 120g smoked streaky bacon, sliced into matchsticks
  4. 1 onion, finely chopped
  5. 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  6. 2 tsp sweet smoked paprika
  7. 2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes
  8. grated parmesan, to serve (optional)


  1. Bring a large pan of water to the boil and cook the spaghetti following pack instructions. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan and cook the bacon for 3-4 mins until just starting to crisp. Stir in the onion and cook for another 3-4 mins, then add the garlic and smoked paprika, and cook for 1 min more.
  2. Pour in the chopped tomatoes, bring to the boil and bubble for about 5 mins until thickened, stirring every so often to stop it catching on the bottom. Drain the pasta and toss with the sauce. Serve with Parmesan, if you like.
