Asparagus & Bacon Pasta Asparagus & Bacon Pasta

Asparagus & Bacon Pasta

It’s no big secret that I love pasta, probably a little too much, probably need rehab, but pasta is life and a life without pasta is not worth living.


I especially love a pasta dish that can be on the table in less than 15 minutes and this is one of those dishes. Easy and quick to make and super tasty.


  1. First things first, get the pasta on because this is a really quick recipe. When the pasta is done, save a little of the cooking water.
  2. Get a frying pan over a low heat, add the pine nuts and toast for a couple of minutes. Once they are nice golden colour pop to one side, be careful they will turn on you if you don’t keep an eye on them.
  3. Add a little drizzle of olive oil to the frying pan, followed by the bacon and asparagus. Fry over a medium to high for around 3-4 minutes or till the bacon just starts to get golden brown and crispy.
  4. Throw in the peas and give that no longer than a minute. Then add the pesto, mix in and give that a minute. 
  5. Finally at the pasta to the pan, along with a little splash of the pasta water and mix well. Add the pine nuts, season, mix in the herbs and your good to go. Finish off with a little drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil.
