Creamy courgette & bacon pasta
- Heat the oil in a large frying pan on a medium heat. Once hot add the bacon and fry for around 5 mins until it starts to crisp. Increase the heat and add the courgette. Cook for 5 mins until soft and starting to brown. Add and stir in the garlic and cook for a further minute. Add and stir in some salt and pepper and set aside.
- Bring to the boil and cook the tagliatelle (based on the cooking instrutions on the packet). Remove a cupful of the cooking tagliatelle water for use later on. Drain the tagliatelle and add to the frying pan with the bacon and courgette. Heat on low and mix everything together with the crème fraiche and half the parmesan. Add some of the pasta water to loosen the sauce a little bit if you feel the mix is a bit too sticky.
- Crack the 4 eggs into a seperate frying pan and fry to your liking. (Sunny side up, over easy etc)
- Serve creamy pasta into bowls and top each with a fried egg. Season to taste and sprinkle over the remaining parmesan and enjoy. Serve alongside garlic bread for an extra treat!
