1. Brint a large pan of water to the boil and cook the spaghetti following pack instructions. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan and cook the bacon for 3-4 minutes until just starting to crisp. Stir in the onion and cook for another 3-4 minutes, then add the garlic and smoked paprika and cook for 1 minute more.
2. Pour in the chopped tomatoes, bring to the boil and bubble for about 5 minutes until thickened, stirring every so often to stop it catching on the bottom. Drain the pasta and toss with sauce. Serve with Parmesan, if you like.
