Pasta with figs and bacon recipe

Long pasta with figs, sweet bacon, and sage leaves on top. A simple, quick, and unique recipe

Prep Time 35 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Additional Time 5 minutes
Total Time 1 hour


  • 6 ripe black figs
  • 350 g of long pasta (I used bavette)
  • 100 g of diced sweet bacon
  • 1 nice spring onion
  • 1 pinch of red pepper
  • a few leaves of sage
  • 40 ml of EVO oil
  • salt as required
  • grated cheese (to taste)


    1. Bring the pasta water to a boil and season with salt. Meanwhile, peel and chop the spring onion and fry it in a large pan with the oil with the diced bacon. Peel and cut the figs into small pieces, then add them to the saute along with 4 whole sage leaves, a pinch of chilli, and a ladle of pasta cooking water.
    2. Cook for about ten minutes over low heat until you have a very creamy sauce that is not too dry (add more cooking water if necessary), season with salt, and remove the sage leaves.
    3. At the same time, you will have cooked the al dente pasta and drained it, reserving a cup of cooking water. Finish the pasta in the pan with the sauce, adding a few drops of cooking water as needed.
    4. Then serve with a few fresh sage leaves on top. If desired, sprinkle the plates with a teaspoon of grated cheese. Have a delicious meal!
