Earthy, woodsy herbs and salty pancetta, both crisped in rendered pancetta fat, infuse this simple spaghetti dish with savory depth. Parmesan cheese adds nutty, umami notes and red pepper flakes add a kick of heat, rounding everything out. Orange is a surprise ingredient in the dish. We love the muted sweetness and acidity of orange zest and juice, which nicely balance the richness of the cheese and pork. Lemon is a fine substitute.
Kosher salt and ground black pepper
01In a large pot, bring 3 quarts water to a boil. Add 2 teaspoons salt and the pasta; cook, stirring occasionally, until just shy of al dente. Reserve 1½ cups of the cooking water, then drain and set aside.

Just made this on a Friday night for my family and it is a big hit! Made as directed (maybe with a bit more red pepper) and served it with a simple salad with olive oil, salt and lemon. Really took us directly to Rome for authentic but simple flavoring. Used Rao pasta which I believe is superior. Do it. Easy and Great.
