pasta amatriciana (bacon and onion :))

serves 4

450g pasta cooked and drained

200g onion chopped into little half cm dice

1 can tomatoes

40g tomato puree

10g Garlic

quarter teaspooon chilli powder

70g bacon cut into little slithers 1-2 mm x 1 cm with your kitchen scissors

60ml oil

fry onions, bacon and seasonings in oil

then when onions are softened and beginning to go translucent, add tomatoes, tom. paste, a tspn salt and cook until you have a sauce that is glossy and will coat the pasta like in the picture.

place the cooked pasta into the pan with the sauce, and toss it until each penne shape is coated with glossy tomatoey bacony loveliness 🙂

The sauce is meant to be a concentrated flavour dressing for the pasta (the Italian way) rather than an enormous blob on the top of plain pasta (the English way! ;))
