Car Brie Nara

A few weeks ago I mentioned that I had bought the new cookery book A Girl Called Jack. I've now made a few of the recipes but my favourite so far is definitely the Car Brie Nara, quick, easy and a little bit naughty, it's a lovely meal to whip up for 2 and would be great for a date night dinner and means you can whip up something tasty even on a limited budget. I recommend this book or Jacks blog for some fab ideas. 
The recipe below isn't from the book word for word(Jack gives variations) but it is exactly how I cook it.

160g spaghetti
1 onion, diced
1 fat clove of garlic, diced
100g smoked bacon, chopped into small pieces
2 teaspoons lemon juice
50g brie
1 tsp mixed herbs
200ml double cream

Put your spaghetti into a pan of boiling water and leave to simmer. While that is cooking fry the bacon adding the lemon juice into the pan, then add the garlic and onion sautéing until nearly cooked,  Cut your brie into small cubes and add to the pan, once it starts to melt add the cream and mixed herbs and stir.
Drain your spaghetti then add to the sauce stirring through before serving.
