Pasta with Bacon and Herbs (or No More Smug Face After This, I Swear)

Not adapted from Jamie's Italy by Jamie Oliver

250g pasta
1 400g tin diced tomatoes
150g diced bacon
a few sprigs of fresh thyme
a mixture of other fresh herbs, chopped, totalling about a handful (I used chives, basil, mint and oregano)
salt and pepper to taste
a glug of olive oil


Put a pot of water on to boil.

Heat a little oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add bacon and thyme and fry until bacon is browned.

Add tomatoes and salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a simmer 'til a bit thickened and flavours are melded together, about 10-15 minutes (bacon helps flavours meld quicker.)

Meanwhile, cook the pasta as per package instructions. Once cooked, place pasta and fresh herbs directly into frying pan and toss with the sauce. Serve straight away.
