When we were last at Wholefoods we bought some very thinly sliced pancetta which I’d almost forgotten about, so before it reached the end of it’s life it became dinner!
Tonight was a simple pasta dish after long days at work for both of us. I sliced the pancetta into strips and sauteed in a pan, without any oil as the fat from the pancetta was sufficient. I added a little chopped garlic and a small chopped chilli for a minute or 2 before adding 2 tins of tomatoes, seasoning, and I left it to bubble away until thick- about 40 mins I think. We had this with some pasta shells- a breakthrough with Colin as he thought he didn’t like them! Nice and comforting and we went to bed with happy full tums.
