Added by: on Jan 16th, 2017
The only cooking I have been doing recently is pureeing fruit and vegetables. My little girl is nearly 6 months old and just like her mummy, she has a real interest in food. I am trying to cook everything fresh so I have been so busy stocking up the freezer. I look forward to the time when we can .. more >

Prepare all the ingredients such as chopping the onion and bacon, crushing the garlic and cutting up the broccoli. The florets need to be bite size, mine were too big!


In a large frying pan, heat a glut of olive oil and fry the onion for 3-4 minutes. Then add the garlic and bacon for around 7-10 minutes until the bacon is crisp. When it is ready, take the pan off the heat.


Meanwhile bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and then cook the pasta according to the packet's instructions, mine took 10 minutes. 3 minutes before the end, add the broccoli to the pan. Once it is ready, drain in a colander and drizzle with a little olive oil, then return to the saucepan.


Add the bacon mixture to the pasta and then thoroughly stir in the creme fraiche and egg yolks.


Serve with a good grinding of black pepper and a sprinkling of grated cheese.


This was very quick and easy to make and it was absolutely delicious. I loved the light creamy sauce, the saltiness of the bacon and the crunch of the broccoli. My husband, daughter and I were all big fans and I was particularly happy to be having an "indulgent" meal that included green veg. Another time, I might substitute the broccoli for mushrooms although not when my daughter is round - she hates them!

If you are looking for real comfort food that takes no time to make, then this is the dish for you! The creaminess of the pasta, combined with the cooked tomatoes, a hint of pesto, & the saltiness of the bacon makes it completely “family-friendly”!
