Smoky bacon, peas, almonds & basil
–Swap the almonds for pistachios, pine nuts, walnuts or pecans. Pick your favourite, or use whatever you have in the cupboard.
–Why not try fresh mint instead of basil for a tasty alternative.
–Wholewheat pasta adds a lovely nuttiness to this dish, but any pasta you’ve got in the cupboard will work perfectly fine.
– Swap the bacon for pan-fried mushrooms or courgettes.
– Substitute the Parmesan for vegetarian hard cheese.
ON THE SIDE
