RECIPE: Spaghetti with Bacon, Chilli, Feta and Basil

I've just finished eating this for lunch and decided I couldn't wait to share!

Spaghetti with Bacon, Chilli, Feta and Basil
Serves 2, ready in 15 minutes


200g spaghetti
4 slices bacon (cut into strips)
butter / oil
100g feta (cut into cubes)
1/2 red chilli (or to taste)
handful of basil leaves
lime zest
salt & pepper (to serve, if required)

1. Boil the spaghetti as per the packet instructions
2. Warm the butter / oil in a frying fan. Add the bacon strips and cut up chilli and fry gently until cooked.
3. Toss the drained spaghetti into the pan with the bacon & chilli, add the basil leaves, feta and toss.Then add the magic ingredient...the lime zest!
4. Garnish with salt and pepper if you wish! ...and serve immediately!

That is it!

If I make this the night before for lunch, I add the feta after I have heated it through fully!
