maltese pasta

This dish was a favourite at home. My parents called it Fideos a la Malte (Maltese Pasta) if the recipe actually comes from there I can’t be sure though we do have Maltese family.


  • 250 grs Macaroni
  • Vegetable Stock Cube
  • Water
  • 150 grs bacon or Spam
  • 200grs grated cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 small tin tomato puree
  • 2 sliced garlic cloves

1, 250G Macaroni previously boiled with a vegetable cube and a splash of olive oil added to the water.

2, Heat oil and fry garlic, tomato puree and bacon bits. Add the drained boiled pasta and fold gently.
