What to do:
Cook pasta in a saucepan of boiling salted water, following packet directions, until tender. Drain the pasta.
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large, deep frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and bacon. Cook for five to six minutes or until golden, stirring occasionally. Add crushed garlic and cook, stirring, for one minute.
