Pre heat a large saucepan over medium heat & add the oil.

When the pan is hot add the shallots & garlic. Sauté until softened & lightly golden. Then add the bacon & parsley.

Bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to a boil. Add your pasta and cook to the packet instructions.

Cook the mix whilst stirring for about 2 more minutes then turn the heat down low. 

Add the cream, miso, nutritional yeast & a pinch of seasoning.
