• Preheat oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Bring a medium saucepan of salted water to the boil. • Grate carrot. Roughly chop silverbeet. Finely chop garlic. • Place cherry tomatoes on a lined oven tray. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Sprinkle with a pinch of brown sugar and salt. Roast until blistered, 15-20 minutes.


• While tomatoes are roasting, cook spaghetti in the boiling water until 'al dente', 10 minutes. • Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Cook panko breadcrumbs (see ingredients) and 1/2 the garlic, stirring occasionally, until fragrant and just toasted, 3-4 minutes. Season to taste. Transfer to a small bowl. • When spaghetti is done, reserve some pasta water (1/2 cup for 2 people / 1 cup for 4 people), then drain spaghetti and return to pan. Drizzle with a little olive oil to prevent sticking. Cover to keep warm.

TIP: 'Al dente' pasta is cooked through but still slightly firm in the centre.


• Return frying pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook diced bacon and carrot, breaking bacon up with a spoon, until browned, 3-4 minutes. Add garlic & herb seasoning and remaining garlic. Cook until fragrant, 1 minute. • Reduce heat to medium. Stir in light cooking cream, vegetable stock powder, dried oregano, silverbeet, 1/2 the reserved pasta water and 1/2 the grated Parmesan cheese. Simmer until reduced slightly, 2-3 minutes. Stir in spaghetti, tomatoes and a splash more pasta water. Cook, stirring, until heated through, 1-2 minutes.


• Season creamy bacon and cherry tomato spaghetti to taste, then divide between bowls. • Sprinkle with garlic pangrattato and remaining Parmesan to serve.
