    Method

    1. Cook the bacon in a frying pan, over a medium heat, for about 10 minutes until the fat has rendered out and the bacon is crispy. At the end of cooking, add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes until softened. Take off the heat and set aside

    2. To make the sauce, heat the butter and cream cheese in a saucepan, over a medium heat, whisking, until fully combined and emulsified

    3. Continue to whisk, add the cream and bring to a gentle boil. Allow to gently blip, reduce and thicken until it coats the back of a spoon

    4. Add the egg yolk, continue to whisk and cook for 1–2 minutes

    5. Take off the heat, add the cheese and stir till fully melted and incorporated. Season with salt and pepper

    6. Using a spiralizer, peeler or knife, make the courgetti. Place prepared courgetti in a colander, pour over 1.5 litres of boiling water and allow to steam and drain for 2 minutes.

    7. Add courgetti and alfredo sauce to the bacon, toss everything together, season to taste and serve
