This quick-as-a-flash pasta is simple and full of flavour. If you don't eat meat, substitute the bacon for juicy portobello mushrooms.


  • 225g/8oz back bacon

  • 100g/4oz garlic cream cheese (such as Boursin)

  • 150ml /5floz single cream

  • 100g/4oz frozen peas

  • 350g/12oz pasta, such as linguine or penne


  • 1.

    Cook the pasta in boiling salted water until al dente - check the packet instructions, but it is generally around 12 minutes. Meanwhile, grill the bacon until crisp, then drain on kitchen paper and snip into pieces. In a small pan melt the cream cheese with the cream , stirring until smooth.

    Cook the peas with the pasta for the last 3 minutes, drain pasta and pour over the sauce. Sprinkle with bacon and serve.
