  • Simple Supper: It's a meal in it's own right and can happily be enjoyed on it's own.
  • Something Fancy: Grill a couple of slices of Prosciutto for a couple of minutes and serve on top with a small handful of pea shoots and chopped parsley.

• It’s a hug of dish just served on its own, but some Garlic Ciabatta on the side would be hard to say no to!

• For the reckless, you can make a carb overload by using it as the filling for the ultimate cheese toastie.

How We Make It

We make that rich white sauce first from a roux (with a little paprika) slowly adding a little. Then in goes English mustard, lots of vintage Cheddar and a pinch of white pepper. The bacon is fried off in a pan until it is nice and crispy. The cheese sauce and bacon are stirred through the pasta and topped with our own garlic croutons.
