Yield: 4 servings
|4 tablespoons||Virgin olive oil|
|1 medium||Onion; chopped 1/2" dice|
|¼ pounds||Pancetta; cut 1/4" dice|
|1 teaspoon||Crushed red pepper flakes|
|2 cups||Basic Tomato Sauce; see * Note|
|1 pounds||Penne pasta|
|¼ pounds||Freshly-grated Pecorino cheese|
* Note: See the "Basic Tomato Sauce" recipe which is included in this collection.
Bring 6 quarts of water to a boil and add 2 tablespoons salt. In a large 12- to 14-inch saute pan heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion, pancetta and saute until the onion is translucent and very soft, about 8 to 10 minutes. Add the red pepper flakes and Basic Tomato Sauce and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Add the penne to the boiling water and cook according to the package directions, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain the pasta in a colander over the sink. Pour the hot pasta into the sauce pan. Return the pasta mixture to the stove and cook for about 1 minute longer, mixing thoroughly. Pour the pasta into a heated serving dish, sprinkle with lots of grated cheese and serve immediately. This recipe yields 4 servings.
