Prep Time: 5 min. • Cook Time: 25 min.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil with 1 teaspoon of salt. Slice bacon in half lengthwise and then dice. Grate desired amount of Parmesan for garnish. Peel and finely chop garlic.
In a large stock pot, add diced bacon to the cold pan and put on medium heat. Slowly cook bacon until crispy. This should take 4-5 minutes. Once bacon is crispy, add garlic and chili flakes and cook for another minute. Add tomato sauce and lower heat. Add ½ teaspoon of salt and ¼ teaspoon of pepper. Simmer sauce for another 10-15 minutes.
While the sauce comes together, cook your pasta. Add the spaghetti to the boiling water and cook for nine minutes. Strain and toss with olive oil. Transfer pasta to pot with sauce and mix everything together until incorporated.
Plate pasta and garnish with arugula and Parmesan cheese.
