As the title says bacon and cream - with some nutmeg and pepper to lift it. Nice with with a tossed green salad and some garlic bread.

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for about 7 to 8 minutes or until al dente; drain. Remove from pot, cover and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small frypan cook bacon over medium heat until crispy. Drain, cut into small pieces and set aside.
  3. In the pasta pot, melt butter over medium-low heat and add cream; heat thoroughly, but do not allow to boil.
