Garlic Press
Large Saucepan
Large Frying Pan


Get Prepped

Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil with 1/2 tsp salt for the pasta.

Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

Halve, peel and chop the onion into small pieces.

Bring on the Bacon

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat.

Once hot, add the bacon lardons and onion and stir-fry until golden, 6-7 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw meat. Cook bacon thoroughly.

Add the garlic and sun-dried tomato paste and stir-fry for 1 min more.

Cook the Pasta

Meanwhile, when your pan of water is boiling, add the linguine and bring back to the boil. Cook until tender, 12 mins.

Once cooked, drain in a colander and pop back into the pan. Drizzle with oil and stir through to stop it sticking together.

Add the Flavour

Stir the chopped tomatoes, chicken stock paste, Worcester sauce, sugar and water for the sauce (see pantry for both amounts) into the bacon. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to low.

Simmer until thickened, 8-10 mins, then remove from the heat.

Add the spinach to the pan a handful at a time until wilted and piping hot, 1-2 mins.

Bring on the Linguine

Once the pasta is cooked, add it to your sauce with the hard Italian style cheese.

Toss to coat, then season to taste with salt and pepper. Add a splash of water if it's a little too thick.

Warm through until piping hot, 1-2 mins.

Finish and Serve

Share the bacon linguine between your bowls.

Finish with a drizzle of the balsamic glaze.
