    Megohm's Note:

    A nice refresher from Pasta Fagioli. Super satisfying, inexpensive and easy to make, I could live off this stuff, and often do.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4-6

    Yield:

    pot

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a large, heavy-bottomed pot, add olive oil, and begin to saute the pancetta or bacon over medium-high heat. When sufficiently browned, remove all but 2 tsp or so of the fat.
    2. 2
      Add onions and celery, sweat three minutes or so until they soften, add garlic, cook 1 minute or until fragrant. Add pimento (or roasted red peppers), cook for a minute or so, then stir in hot pepper flakes (or cayenne), and anchovy paste, if you’re using it.
    3. 3
      Add tomatoes, paste, and chicken broth, stirring until tomato paste is smooth. Add sugar, bay leaf and basil. Make sure it comes to a simmer if it already isn’t, then turn heat down to medium-low, cover and let simmer for at least 40 minutes or so, stirring fairly frequently.
    4. 4
      Add pasta, and a little extra water if needed (I went with a bit under 1.5 cups of additional water), stir, and simmer, till pasta is tender. You will need to stir pretty frequently, or else surrender yourself to bottom-stick-stew.
    5. 5
      Top with some Parmesan or Romano.
