Spaghetti with Tomato, Bacon, Mint and Capers

This week we return to professional food blogger Katie Quinn Davies for some rustic kitchen inspiration. As it is bank holiday this weekend, now  is the perfect opportunity to spend a little extra time experimenting in the kitchen.  Ideal for hosting family and friends, Spaghetti with tomato, bacon, mint and capers can easily be adapted for a big crowd and is sure to impress any guests you are hosting over the long weekend.

Combining traditional ingredients, a classic tomato based sauce is transformed with a unique mix of flavours.  Normally used in an indulgent carbonara, bacon adds impressive flavour to this lighter sauce. Complete with fresh mint and the caper’s distinctive sour/salty infusion, this summer recipe is a refreshingly different take on a traditional pasta and meat meal.

Finish your dish with a topping of Parmesan cheese for a true Italian flair, which is sure to satisfy your taste buds. |
