Chef's tip

If you want to turn this dish vegetarian, just leave out the diced bacon or replace it with smoked tofu. If you can't find salty Ricotta, you can use Pecorino cheese instead.

Serving suggestion

Serve with a big colourful salad or vegetable side-dishes.

Wine selection

Pinot grigio, Chardonnay or Soave.

Family tip

We recommend using 1 litre of water for every 100 g of pasta.
