Pasta of The Day


This is one of my favourite pasta recipe of all times. It is simple, delicious and good looking.


spaghetti (250 g), bacon (2 slices, about 100 g), 6 of sliced button mushroom, 1 can of tomato, 1/2 cup of sliced kalamata olive, 1/4 cup of chopped fresh basil,  1/4 cup of chopped fresh flat leaf parsley, minced garlic, shaved cheddar cheese, salt and pepper.

What to do:

  1. Place a large pot of salted water onto boil. Add spaghetti and cook until al dente.
  2. While pasta is cooking, into a frying pan heat olive oil over medium heat. Add bacon first and cook until crispy. Then add mushroom and sauté for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Stir in canned tomato, sliced kalamata olives. Cook until heated through.
  4. Add basil, parsley and garlic, cook for a few minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Add drained spaghetti into the sauce. Toss to coat.
  6. Serve with shaved cheddar cheese. (To get the fabulous looking cheese curl, use a peeler to shave the cheese.)
