Creamy Bacon and Broccoli Pasta

  • 500 Grams broccoli washed and cut into florets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 125 Grams bacon chopped finely
  • 1 Cup All-purpose cream
  • 1/2 Cup milk
  • 500 Grams pasta noodles cooked according to package directions (we used fusilli)
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2-1 Cup pasta water
  • 1/2 Cup parmesan cheese grated
  • chili flakes

Instructions
 

  • Boil broccoli florets in a pot of salted water for 12 to 15 minutes or until soft; drain. Mash broccoli with a fork or whiz in a food processor; set aside.
  • Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat and fry bacon for 3 to 4 minutes. Add broccoli and stir.
  • Add cream and milk. Lower heat and simmer for 1 minute.
  • Add cooked pasta to sauce; stir until well combined. Season with salt and pepper. Add pasta water a tablespoon at a time if the sauce becomes too thick, making sure that it remains creamy. Toss in parmesan cheese.
     
  • Divide among serving bowls and top with more parmesan cheese and chili flakes, if desired.
