Spaghetti with Tomato, Bacon, Mint and Capers

Blog 23/08/2013 8:55 AM

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.
