Take 5 for Students: Creamy Tomato and Bacon Pasta

Garlic, chopped tomatoes, cream, bacon, pasta.

This is really delicious. Put four big cloves of crushed garlic in a pan with two cans of chopped tomatoes and a big splash of oil. Allow it to simmer away while you chop up a handful of bacon, then sauté that in a pan with another splash of oil until it’s golden. Boil a packet of pasta in lots of salted water. Stir ½ cup cream into the tomato, then add the bacon (and the oily part – it’ll keep you warm in the winter).

Drain the pasta, add salt and pepper, then stir through a splash of oil. Tip into a big heated bowl – or straight onto individual plates – and spoon the sauce on top. You may serve cheese, but I didn’t use it and it was just perfect anyway. The garlic flavour captures and holds your attention, the cream rounds everything out – and combined with the undeniable joys of bacon, nothing more is needed.

The Messara Report on New Zealand Horse Racing

: My mum’s family loves a “flutter”.   A “flutter” is Kiwi slang for betting. Usually on horse racing, but we’re also partial to the odd greyhound meet or two. In April 2018, the Minister for Racing, Winston Peters, released the Messara report, calling for the clos
