- 1/2 lb cheddar cheese, grated
- 1/4 lb bacon strips, crushed
- 1 clove garlic, chopped
- 1 small piece of onion, chopped
- 1/4 lb butter, sliced
- salt and pepper to taste
- Bring the water to a boil for the pasta. Make sure you add a little bit of oil and a pinch of salt to make your pasta perfect. Once cooked, drain water and pour cold water over to stop pasta being overcooked. Drain again and set aside.
