Pasta is a perennial crowd pleaser when it comes to dinner. It is also super quick and very versatile. That’s why tonight we are sharing with you this really simple twenty minute gluten-free asparagus and pancetta pasta recipe. Seeing as asparagus is coming into season, it’s the best time to make this dish.
This was a meal I made based on what I happened to have on hand after a busy day. You can easily make this recipe your own, by changing out the vegetable, leaving out the pancetta, or even swapping pancetta for bacon. Pancetta is an Italian salt-cured pork similar to bacon, but pancetta isn’t smoked. If you buy a piece of pancetta, you can keep it well wrapped in the freezer to have on hand when you need to add it to a recipe.
This is not just a great dinner dish, it would make for a lovely lunch as it is full of bright, spring flavours. Think how lovely this could be as part of a Mother’s Day lunch/brunch.
