Pasta with Pancetta
A quick and delicious pasta recipe using only three ingredients! Olive oil, pancetta and pasta is all that you need to make this super tasty dish.
At its simplest, this recipe only uses three ingredients – olive oil, pancetta and pasta. This is a recipe you need to have for those evenings when you don’t know what to cook or when you simply don’t have time to cook.
This Pasta with Pancetta is what I like to make when we arrive home after a long journey or holiday, and when I need to make a satisfying dinner from what I already have in the kitchen and pantry.
I typically always have a few blocks of pancetta in the fridge or freezer, and we always have a steady supply of spaghetti in the pantry. Which means that dinner will usually be ready in the time that it takes me to cook the pasta.
- 200 g (7 oz) pancetta
- 350 g (12 oz) pasta (spaghetti or linguine)
- sea salt and freshly cracked white pepper
- 3–4 tablespoons olive oil
- fresh parsley, finely chopped (optional)
