Spaghetti with Cabbage and Bacon

Posted By Kerri


Another attempt to use up the cabbage mountain cobbled together from various recipes and suggestions I found online. It was very simple and tasted good but could have used a lot more cabbage.

Not really a recipe but fry off the bacon until the fat has rendered and transfer to a plate. Drain some of the oil (if there’s a lot) and then slowly sweat the onions until softened. Add a clove of garlic and half a red, chopped chilli and cook for about two minutes. Return the bacon to the frying pan, add the shredded cabbage with a little water, put a lid on and cook for about three minutes.

When your pasta is cooked, drain and return to the pan. Add the onion and bacon, some grated parmesan and some black pepper, combine and serve.

Some cream would have been a really good addition but a drizzle of good olive oil worked well.

    Thanks, Alex!

    There’s still quite a lot left unfortunately, CC. Must think of something else tomorrow.

    Pesto sounds interesting, Anne.

    I have a cabbage that’s been staring accusingly at me from the fridge for far too long – this looks a welcome alternative to the inevitable soup!
