Buttery Bacon Spaghetti

There are pasta recipes for dieters, but guess what, this is not one of them! Sometimes nothing but the richest, most indulgent pasta dinner will do, especially if you are craving Italian comfort food but not really in a pizza mood. This recipe boasts butter, olive oil and bacon, as well as parmesan cheese and garlic. We are quite heavy-handed with the butter and garlic in this recipe, because if you want something this decadent there is no point in restricting the best ingredients in the dish.

Every mouthful is delicious, aromatic, rich-flavored, and satisfying, and served with a contrasting side dish like steamed asparagus or mixed baby salad leaves, this makes a fantastic dinner, and you can make it from scratch and have it on the table in less than 30 minutes, including cooking the pasta and bacon, which of course you should do simultaneously to save time. Get the bacon really crispy so it crumbles between your fingers easily. Cook the bacon first because you will need to let it cool down before crumbling it. It will warm up again fast when tossed with the pasta anyway.

This is not the type of dish to tweak into something healthy, so do not even think about swapping the butter for margarine or leaving out the extra-virgin olive oil. This dish can be served in smaller portions if you do not want too much of this decadent feast, or in larger portions if you really want to treat yourself to something special.
