Macaroni and Bacon

Little Miss E’s portion of Mac and bacon.

half an ounce of dripping or other fat
2 ounces of leek or onion, peeled and chopped
2 ounces bacon, chopped
1 pint stock or water
6 ounces macaroni
1 teaspoon salt
pinch pepper
watercress or cheese etc for garnish

Melt the dripping or fat in a pan and fry the leek or onion and bacon until lightly browned. Add the stock or water and when boiling, add the macaroni and seasoning. Cook for about 2o minutes or until the macaroni is tender and the water is absorbed. Serve very hot garnished with watercress (optional) or some grated cheese.

This recipe is another brilliant one from Marguerite Pattens Victory cookbook. Although the amounts lists here produced enough for us, we’re not huge pasta eaters and so you might need to double up on the quantities if the dish was not being accompanied by a good load of veg. (or bread and butter)
