Ingredients

  • 350g penne pasta
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 8 rashers smoked back bacon, chopped
  • 200ml hot vegetable stock
  • 300g frozen peas
  • 150g pack gorgonzola, cubed

Method

  1. Cook the pasta following pack instructions. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large frying pan, then add the onion and cook for 3 mins until starting to soften. Add the bacon, cook for a further 5 mins, then pour in the hot stock and bring to the boil. Simmer for a few mins until the liquid has reduced slightly.
