# 168 Fridays recipes: Spaghetti with bacon, walnuts and pineapple pieces

This is a dish I came up with the other day when we got home quite late from our weekly shopping and I needed to make something quick for lunch. Since them this dish has featured quite often in our weekly meal plan and always goes down a treat especially with A.

Spaghetti with bacon, walnuts and pineapple pieces

Smoked pork belly cut into small cubes (or bacon rashers cut into thin strips or bacon lardons)
Olive oil
Handful of walnuts
2 or 3 tablespoons canned pineapple pieces
2 or 3 tablespoons double cream

Cook the spaghetti in salted boiling water until it's al dente.

Meawhile in a large frying pan fry the bacon in a little olive oil until golden and crispy. Add the walnuts and cook for a couple of minutes more. Drain the olive oil, add the pineapple pieces and the double cream. Mix well and set aside.

Drain the spaghetti and add to the frying pan mixing well so the bacon, the walnuts and the pineapple is evenly distributed. Serve immediately.
