Creamy Pea & Bacon Spaghetti Recipe

Creamy Pea & Bacon Spaghetti

Perfect for those nights when only a big bowl of comforting pasta will do! This meal is inexpensive and so quick to throw together. Don’t be fooled by how simple it looks. It is packed with flavour. I love serving it with a big bowl of dressed baby spinach leaves or steamed broccoli. Chilli flakes and extra parmesan are a must for me too!
