Farfalle with Peas, Broccoli and Bacon

I'm not going to lie about it. I love food. I literally sit and think about what my next meal is going to be all the time. And I enjoy cooking (as long as I'm not cooking for just myself). I tend to stick to meals that are easier to put together so you should see quite a few of them pop up on the blog every now and then.

This pasta dish couldn't be easier and it all comes together as quickly as it takes to boil the pasta! No joke, you can have your meal ready in literally 15 minutes. It's pretty much just tossing everything together and you're there!

Serves 3-4
  • 6-8 slices smoked streaky bacon (you could use pancetta if you prefer though!)
  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 100 grams of grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 chicken stock cube
  • 400 grams Farfalle pasta
  • Olive oil
  • 300 grams of frozen peas
  • 300ml double cream
  • 2 cloves of minced garlic
  1. Finely slice the bacon. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and put in the pasta. Make sure that you season the boiling water wish a dash of olive oil (so that the pasta doesn't stick together) and some salt. Boil the pasta as per the packet instructions. 
  2. Get a large frying pan and put in a dash of olive oil. Add the finely sliced bacon to the pan and fry it up until it's nice and crisp. As soon as the bacon is golden, add the minced garlic, stock cube, peas and broccoli. 
  3. After a few minutes (when the broccoli has softened), start adding the cream and mix the sauce through thoroughly. Add in the Parmesan cheese at this point and continue stirring. Season with salt and pepper if necessary. 
  4. Drain the pasta in a colander and once drained, add the pasta to the frying pan and mix thoroughly ensuring that the pasta is covered in the creamy sauce. 
And voila! You're done. So simple and delicious! 

What simple recipes do you guys know? I'm always looking at trying new things that I can quickly put together.
