This spaghetti all'amatriciana recipe isa traditional Italian pasta dish that can be whipped up in just 15 minutes. Packed with energy, it makes a great meal to serve the family before or after exercise.

  1. Fry the bacon, onion and garlic in the oil over a medium heat for 4 minutes.
  2. Bring a pan of salted water up to the boil and cook the spaghetti until just done - about 8 - 9 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, add the peppers, tomatoes and chilli to the pan with the bacon and cook for 1 minute, then pour in the passata.
  4. Season and simmer until the spaghetti is ready.
  5. Drain the spaghetti, adding a tablespoon of the pasta water to the sauce. Put the spaghetti back in its pan and pour in the tomato sauce.
  6. Mix well to combine and cook for a further 1 minutes over a medium heat, and serve.
