bacon and broad bean tagliatelle

Today at work I received a huuuuuge bag of organic broad beans, tenderly grown and picked by a client from work, straight from his garden! The first thing that sprang to mind was "ooh yum, broad bean curry!" (I've never been that independently creative when it comes to new and exciting dishes). And it was to that reaction that he told me that I need to make a delicious bacon and broad bean pasta. 

Now, which dish would you rather go for? Of course, the pasta!

And it was so easy to make!
 All you need is a packet of bacon - which I very lazily cut up with scissors - one chopped onion, a decent handful of broad beans, some garlic and seasoning. Toss this all together and brown, then add a generous blob of cream and let simmer whilst your pasta cooks. When the pasta is done, drain the water and plop it in the saucepan with your porky, beany goo and mix together.

The above breakdown is somewhat brief, so if you want the exact recipe take a look over here.

The dish was immensely tasty, although perhaps ever so slightly rich. Perhaps a little less cream next time.
