Add the garlic and pepper akes and cook for 1 minute more. Splash in the wine, add the red pepper paste and tomato paste, scrape up any stuck-on bits, then let burble for a few minutes to cook the mixture. 3. Turn the heat to low, add the bread and the reserved bacon and chouriรงo fats, and pour in just enough of the stock-water combination, beating well with a spoon, to make the mixture moist.

Take a taste and season with salt and pepper if needed. Scoop the dressing into a bowl and speckle with the parsley.
