The epitome of moreish, this cold pasta salad is all about two big flavours - crispy smoked bacon and fresh, tangy spring onion. Everything is bound together with creamy mayo and mature cheddar cheese to create a delicious dish that's far more than a side salad. This is a two part recipe. In part one we cook the pasta and bacon. In part two we mix everything together and serve.
Large pan of salted boiling water for the pasta
Frying pan/wok for the bacon
Colander to drain and rinse the pasta
Large mixing bowl
Spoons to stir
