I came up with this recipe kind of by accident several years ago when I couldn’t be bothered going to the supermarket; I had bacon, I had chicken, I had pasta and a few vegetables but I didn’t have any cream for the sauce so I opened some evaporated milk and poured it in and it was sensational. All the flavour with none of the guilt. Well, clearly adding bacon doesn’t make it totally fat free but I’m talking about the sauce being low fat more so than the rest of the ingredients but a few slices of bacon won’t add much fat anyway.

What was even better was that my kids absolutely loved this too – plenty of flavour from the garlic, paprika, dill and chilli and it was filling and delicious.
