Method

 
Fry the bacon in a non-stick pan until crispy, add the onion and continue frying until fragrant and translucent.

Add the tinned tomatoes (give them a good squash), tomato paste, dried oregano and sugar. Gently simmer for at least 15 minutes.

Add the peas and cream and simmer for a further 5 – 10 minutes. Stir in the parmesan and take off the heat.

Season with salt and lots of freshly ground pepper to taste. Gently toss the drained cooked pasta through the sauce. Adjust seasoning.

Serve garnished with grated parmesan and some chopped parsley or chives.

Tip of the day

 
Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
