Spaghetti with Shaved Asparagus and Pancetta Recipe
Jessica Chou

This simple spaghetti dish is just as good without pancetta. For vegetarians, add more asparagus and try topping the dish with a poached egg and shaved Parmesan, pecorino, or Grana Padano.

INGREDIENTS

  • ½ pound dry spaghetti ($.99)
  • Salt, to taste
  • 6 ounces asparagus, trimmed ($2.00)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, pressed and roughly chopped ($.10)
  • 2 ounces pancetta, cubed ($2.50)
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • Pepper, to taste

DIRECTIONS

In a medium-sized pot over high heat, bring 8 cups of water to a boil. Salt the water liberally, until it tastes like the sea.

Add the spaghetti and lower the heat to medium-high heat. Cook for 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until just under al dente, then drain.

Meanwhile, shave the asparagus into long strips with a vegetable peeler.

Heat a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat and then add the olive oil. Heat until shimmering then add the chopped garlic. Sauté for 30 seconds. Add the pancetta and cook over medium heat for 1 minute.

Add the asparagus strips and mix, cooking for another 1-2 minutes. Then add the pasta and stir over medium heat for 3-4 minutes.

Remove the pan from the heat and incorporate the butter into the pasta. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
