This was so simple yet had such delicious flavours. I made my own ricotta and used streaky bacon instead of pancetta. There is something about pasta, tomatoes & quality cheese that is just beautiful. Thank youfor posting this, I was tempted to add garlic or herbs but didn't, I don't think it would be so bad if you did though, so long as you were judicious! Thanks for posting.

We really enjoyed this pasta dish. I used ground plum tomates and add vegetable broth instead of the pasta water to thin it out. I too used feta since I was unable to find the cheese, it turned out great. The sauce has a nice kick to it. Thank you

This was delicious! I used a hard wood smoked bacon and a sweet onion. I couldn't find any ricotta salata unfortunately, so I used feta. WE all loved it including the kids!! :) THanks for the great recipe!

This was delicious. I think I may have added a bit too much pepper flakes as I am freezing most as planned overs and pepper gets hotter with age, but it was delicious as written.

A lovely pasta dish. I made it ith pancetta, a tiny hot red pepper chopped up instead of the flakes, and fresh tomatoes and herbs. I'm glad I didn't add more herbs or garlic--the flavor of the sauce is very bright and the cheese finishes it perfctly. I know this will also be delicious using canned tomatoes and dried herbs when the fresh are not available. One variation I will try--to add some anchovies with the pancetta and let them dissolve into the sauce.
