Bacon, ham, broccoli cream sauce with spaghetti     Photographer: Adrianna Anastasiades

Prep time: 10 minutes      Cooking time: 15 minutes      Serves: 4


1 carton of double cream

1 packet of Tenderstem broccoli cut into small chunks

4 rashers of bacon cut into small pieces

4 slices of ham cut into small pieces

1 red onion chopped finely

1 clove of garlic chopped finely

salt and pepper for seasoning

1 tsp of olive oil

1 packet of spaghetti


Step 1.  Boil the spaghetti according to the instructions on the packet. Heat the olive oil in the frying pan on a medium heat and add the garlic and onion. Let it cook for 5 minutes until fragrant.

Step 2. Add the bacon and ham into the frying pan. Once they have cooked, add the broccoli. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 3. Once the broccoli is cooked, add the double cream and lower the heat. Let it simmer for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally until it is cooked all the way through. Drain the spaghetti once it is ready. Serve this heavenly combination together and enjoy.

Tip: Add a little bit of olive oil to the drained spaghetti; it stops the spaghetti from sticking together and gives it a boost for flavour.
