Pasta with Hake and Bacon

This recipe brings together marine and terrestrial flavors. It is a very unique recipe since these types of ingredients are not usually mixed. The good thing about pasta is that it allows you to mix different ingredients, always having an excellent result that adapts to all kinds of palates. This is a fairly quick and simple recipe. It is ideal to combine with a cold starter such as a bit of Jamon Serrano or any other type of cured meat with bread and oil.
