Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver also presented three simple pasta sauces on his cooking show Jamie: Keep Cooking and Carry On.
Cut smokey bacon (one or two slices per person) into little matchstick sized pieces.
Add these pieces to a pan on medium heat and add a drizzle of olive oil with a pinch of black pepper.
If you have an egg, whisk it and a handful of parmesan, or finely grated cheddar cheese if you do not have parmesan.
If you do not have an egg, you can use the cooking water from the pan of pasta and add parmesan with a drizzle of oil.
Move the concoction around to make it go creamy.
When the bacon is crispy take it off the heat.
Add fresh pasta to the ban with the bacon and egg mixture.
Toss the mixture off the heat quickly, being aware that if the pan is too hot it will cause the eggs to split.
