DIRECTIONS

  • Boil the pasta in lots of salty water, the more water you use, the better the pasta will be, even for a small quantity.
  • Drain the pasta and let it stand until your sauce is ready.
  • To save time, start preparing your sauce while the pasta is boiling.
  • For the sauce: in a frying pan, fry the onions and garlic with the pancetta until the onions are golden brown and the pancetta is crispy. Do not use more than a few drops of oil, or even none at all, because the pancetta will give you plenty of that.
  • Toss the pasta with the fried onions, garlic and pancetta.
  • Pour cream over it all, as much as you like (I use about 100 ml).
  • Season with salt and pepper, according to taste.
  • Voila, your delicious meal is ready!
