All time favourite


  1. Heat oil in a large frying pan or saucepan over a medium heat and sauté the onion and garlic 2-3 minutes. Remove & set aside.
  2. Return the pan to the heat and brown the bacon over a high heat, draining off excess fat.
  3. Reduce heat to low and stir in the Bulla Cooking Cream, parsley, chives, parmesan cheese and freshly ground black pepper. Stir until well combined and heated through 2-3 minutes.
  4. Toss the freshly cooked pasta through the sauce.
  5. Serve garnished with shaved parmesan.
