Midweek Munchies: Baceese & Mint Pasta

I’ve decided to start a weekly feature on my blog, called Midweek Munchies. A feature to make sure I log my kitchen tinkerings weekly and regularly.

This week its Baceese (say Bake-eez) & Mint Pasta.

It’s a new favourite in our house, but P complained about the washing up due to the cheese, so make sure you rinse out your pan ASAP.

The mint in this recipe really makes it, so I really would advise against omitting it!

It takes about 15 minutes from start to finish, so perfect for an after work dinner.


  • Enough pasta to fill your bowls (any shape you fancy – I use fusilli as that is what I had handy)
  • a splash of vegetable oil
  • Bacon
  • Frozen Peas
  • Chopped Mint (I plucked mine from my windowsill pot! Check me out!)
  • Grated Cheese (I grated a shed load because P loves cheese)


  1. Boil up your pasta, drain, but reserve half a cup of the cooking water.
  2. Heat up the oil in a pan, and fry your bacon for 4 minutes.
  3. Add your peas and a splash of water and cook for another 4 minutes.
  4. Toss the pasta through the bacon and peas, ensuring it gets mixed in all the bacon fat.
  5. Add the chopped mint and grated cheese, mixing well, adding the reserved water if it looks too dry.
  6. Serve and Enjoy!
