Angel Hair Pasta in the Pancetta Tradition!
Pancetta is an Italian bacon made of pork belly meat that is salt cured and spiced with black pepper and sometimes other ...which I like very much. This dish is an angel hair pasta put together in the pancetta tradition. Which means, that instead of using pancetta a substitute was used - ground pork mixed with ground pork breakfast sausage, both purchased by the pound from the butcher.
Start with a skillet of hot olive oil, tossing in one whole chopped onion, and a couple of diced garlic gloves. Once, browned on the edges and becoming transparent, push aside and add the ground pork mixture. Brown this meat and then bring back in the onion/garlic. Sprinkle in a generous amount of dried rosemary and oregano. Next, add one small can of diced tomatoes with basil. Simmer for 20 min. while you cook the angel hair pasta.
Serve with Parmesan Cheese...
