Even though bacon is somewhat the ironic hipster of cured meats, there are still those times when I find myself in bacon awe. Yes, despite all the bacon ice creams, bacon-wrapped chocolate bars, bacon sprinkle donuts, bacon-shapped bandaids and weird bacon dog accessories, sometimes bacon really does make things better.
Thick juicy bacon melting into browned butter with a refreshing tomato/arugula finish. And yeah, there’s prawns in there too. Overplayed or not, this pasta proves that sometimes bacon really does deserve the hype.
