  • 1/4 to 1/3 pesto
  • shredded cheese


  • Cook the pasta until al dente (see how to cook al dente pasta like a pro).
  • Fry the bacon (of you use a non-stick pan, there is no need to add oil; the bacon will simply fry in its rendered fat) until browned and crisp. Crumble.

  • Serve the pasta with bacon and pesto with buttered toast.
