SW recipe: Bucatini all’amatriciana

Serves 4

Ready in about 30 minutes


Low-calorie cooking spray

250g smoked dry-cured back bacon rashers, visible fat removed, chopped into small pieces

1 medium onion, finely chopped

Quarter tsp dried chilli flakes

2 x 400g cans whole plum tomatoes

2 tbsp tomato pure

500g dried bucatini pasta (or use spaghetti or linguine)

Small pack fresh basil leaves, shredded


1 Spray a non-stick lidded frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a medium heat. Add the bacon and stir-fry for 2 minutes, or until just cooked through. Transfer to a plate and keep warm.

2 Add the onion, chilli and 3 tbsp water to the pan, cover and cook over a low heat for 10 minutes.

3 Uncover the pan and gently crush the canned tomatoes into the pan (if you dont mind getting your hands messy, using them will give the best results you want chunky tomato in the finished sauce). Stir in the tomato pure and simmer for 15 minutes, or until reduced to a good sauce consistency.

4 Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to the pack instructions. Drain well and return to the hot pan.

5 Season the sauce to taste, pour it over the bucatini along with the bacon and toss together well. Scatter over the basil and serve with a large mixed-leaf salad.

Ultimate Slimming Tips!

Slimming Tip 1 – Don’t go hungry
If you are hungry you need to eat. Depriving your body of food will just see you miserable and maybe even grabbing the high fat, high sugar foods instead. And that’s really not going to help.

Slimming Tip 2 – Fill up on Super Slimming Foods 
Now no food has the power to actually slim you down, but the foods with the least calories for the most amount of filling power will cut your calorie intake without you even realising.
These foods what to take priory over other foods, by filling your plate with at least 1/3 of the Super Slimming Foods will see the lbs literally drop off.

Slimming Tip 3 – Plan Plan Plan
Fail to plan is planning to fail. Make a solid plan not only for the foods and meal you are going to enjoy but also what might get in your way. If you know you have a night out, that’s fine, just plan… What food will you order? What drinks will you order? And stick to your plan for amazing weight losses.
