Spelt Spaghetti with cherry tomatoes and bacon,

At first I was reluctant to share this recipe with you because it was so simple and made in about 15 minutes tops. But after devouring a plate of it (a bit too much perhaps),  I felt it would be very selfish to keep this from you. It’s utter comfort food made in minutes.


1 lbs. Spelt pasta, one pack

1/2 C. organic bacon, diced

2 cloves of garlic, grated (or thru your garlic crusher)

a punnet of cherry tomatoet, washed and cut in half

a handfull of green olives sliced

2 tbsp. fresh oregano, or otherwise about 1 tsp dried

2 tbsp. capers, drained

2 tbsp. olive oil

1/4 C. toasted pine nuts

Start by putting the pasta in salted boiling water and cook for 7 to 9 minutes.

Meanwhile cook the bacon in a hot pan with 1 tbsp of olive oil. When almost done add the cherry tomatoes, garlic and olives. Then add the oregano. From the pan where you are boiling your pasta, scoop a ladle into the pan with your bacon. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Meanwhile the pasta should be cooked, drain but do not rinse, add it to the pan with your bacon and olives and so forth. Add the capers. Toss together and serve immediatly. Drizzle over the rest of the olive oil and scatter with the remaining fresh oregano and the toasted pine nuts.

Serve with extra grated Parmesan cheese if you like.
