Ingredients

  • 300g elicoidali rigati, or try penne
  • 2 x 77g pack Cooks’ Ingredients Diced Pancetta
  • 1 sprig/s rosemary, finely chopped
  • 145g tub red chilli & tomato pesto
  • 90g pack wild rocket
  • 25g parmesan, Grana Padano or pecorino, finely grated, to serve

Method

  1. Cook the pasta in a large pan of lightly salted boiling water according to pack instructions. Drain and return to the pan.

  2. Meanwhile, fry the pancetta and rosemary in a frying pan for 3-4 minutes until crisp and golden. Tip into the pan of drained pasta, spooning away any excess fat if needed.

  3. Stir in the pesto and rocket, then divide between 4 shallow bowls. Top with black pepper and the cheese and serve.

Cook’s tip

If you like the ideas in this recipe but don’t eat meat, prawns are a great substitute. Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan and sizzle a pack or 2 of raw prawns with the rosemary until pink, opaque and cooked through. Add the pesto and carry on.
