  • 1/2 pound spaghetti
  • 5 ounces bacon or pancetta
  • 2 cups sweet corn can be frozen
  • 1 white onion diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup cream
  • 2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup basil chopped
  • 3 tablespoons thyme picked


  • Heat a high sided frying pan over a medium heat and cook the bacon until golden and crispy. Remove the bacon to a plate and pour off half the bacon fat.
  • Add the onion and garlic and sweet corn to the pan and gentle sauté until soft and translucent. Pour the chicken broth and spaghetti into the pan and bring to a boil. Turn the pan down to a simmer and let the pasta cook for about 6 minutes. Pour the cream into the pan and continue cooking until the pasta is al dente.
  • Once the pasta is cooked add the bacon back to the pan and stir the chopped herbs through and divide the pasta between 2 plates.
