This makes a change from a regular side dish of buttery pasta. Save that bacon grease from the morning in a cup in the fridge and put it to good use.


Serves: 6 

  • 250g macaroni
  • 20g butter
  • 1 teaspoon bacon grease
  • 250g tomato pasta sauce
  • 440g tinned chopped tomatoes, with juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon white sugar
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

Preparation:5min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Extra time:20min resting  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling stir in the macaroni and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through but is still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
  2. Pour the macaroni into a saucepan and place over medium heat; stir in the butter, bacon grease, tomato sauce, tomatoes with juice and sugar; season with salt and pepper. Stir while cooking until butter and bacon grease has melted and incorporated completely, 5 to 10 minutes; remove from heat, cover and allow to sit about 20 minutes before serving.
