ounces short, curly pasta, such as cavatappi or gemelli
Kosher salt and ground black pepper
teaspoon saffron threads
ounces pancetta, finely chopped
medium garlic clove, smashed and peeled
ounce Parmesan cheese, shaved with a vegetable peeler
Great recipe. Easy to follow and delicious! Cooking time was about 10 minutes longer than prescribed.
Just made it but didn't have pancetta so I used bacon (quarantine). I threw some cherry tomatoes in at the last minute, it looked a bit drab. Its delicious and I can't wait to make it again with pancetta.
Lisa L., We have been having luck getting panchetta from Whole Foods delivered free through Amazon Prime. It is the best panchetta I have ever used.
Wonderful recipe. If it were any easier it'd be takeout. Made it as directed and it turned out perfectly. If you're missing the gemelli, you can use penne and it won't even feel like it's in a pinch!
sublime. the secret is in using the pasta cooking water. I forgot to add the cream and didn't miss it. the saffron imparted a lovely color.
Made this last night for dinner - OMG, so quick, easy and good. Will definitely become a regular on my easy-night cooking. I followed the recipe as is and then decided to add some parmesan cheese to the hot mixture so it would melt in and become part of the overall taste, and also added shavings on top, I liked both with and without the melted parmesan cheese.
Not very flavorful. Too much pasta and too little other ingredients. Would not make again.
Sorry, I usually love everything Milk Street, but this didn’t make it for me - was bland even after adding more cheese, ground pepper and a bit more salt and a shake of crushed pepper.
Appreciate all the comments, this is an excellent recipe with some adjustments. I doubled the pancetta added two hands full of cherry tomatoes and edamame, dusted it with Italian seasoning and added red pepper flakes. Again this is an excellent recipe
Loved this! I used 4 oz of pancetta, a little more zucchini, & used whole milk with butter. My family devoured it & asked for it again.
