In less than 30 minutes I cooked up this nice dish from scratch. I liked the idea of a simple, but filling dish without the heaviness of cream and butter ["pastas you don't want to eat in a while"]. *Don't fry garlic for too long because it easily turns black and bitter. *Preparation time includes the cooking time of the pasta *You may have noticed that I don't use salt for the sauce. The pancetta itself gives of enough of a 'salty' flavor', so I didn't think it was necessary. *The nutritional values calculated for this recipe are bogus. I don't know exactly what happened, but common sense with put this recipe to < 500 calories.
