Instructions

    Bring a pot of salted water to a boil.

    Heat a thin film of oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the bacon and cook until crisp, about 6 minutes. Transfer the bacon to a bowl, leaving about 1 tablespoon of fat in the pan.

    Add the shallots and cook until nearly softened, about 3 minutes. Add the orange juice and zest, red pepper flakes, olives, dried plums, prune juice concentrate, and red wine vinegar. Season with salt. Simmer until the liquid has reduced by half, then stir in the bacon.

    Cook the pasta in boiling water until cooked, about 9 minutes. Save 115 ml  / 1/2 cup of the pasta cooking water and drain the pasta.

    Combine the sauce and the pasta, stirring until well combined. Sprinkle Parmesan and parsley on top and divide between 4 plates to serve.
