Make the Pasta
  • Boil a large pot of salted water for the linguine
  • When boiling, add the linguine to the water and bring back to the boil.
  • Cook until softened, 12 mins. 
  • Once cooked, drain in a colander and pop back in the pot, off the heat.
  • Drizzle with oil and stir through to prevent sticking. 

TIP: If you’re in a hurry you can boil the water in your kettle.

Cook the Veg
  • Meanwhile, roughly chop the mushrooms.
  • Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
  • Halve the chilli, discard the core and seeds and finely chop.
  • Halve, peel and thinly slice the onion.
  • Place a large pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil. Once hot, fry the bacon, mushrooms, garlic and onion until golden, stirring, 4-5 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw meat. Cook lardons thoroughly.
Simmer the Sauce
  • Add the stock powder and creme fraiche to the pan.
  • Simmer until the sauce has thickened, 10-14 mins (add a splash of water if the sauce becomes too thick).
  • Once simmered, carefully mix in the drained linguine, spinach and half the cheese.
  • Cook until the cheese has melted and the spinach is wilted.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Finish and Serve
  • Divide the creamy bacon linguine between deep plates or bowls.
  • Top with a sprinkling of chopped chilli (use less if you don't like spice) and the remaining cheese.

TIP: If you're cooking for kids you may want to leave out the chilli in this dish!
