Quick , simple & tasty recipe with only 6 ingredients.
One of my favourite quick meals , found years ago in Australian House & Garden Magazine
Combine olive oil and pancetta in a pan (large enough to hold pasta later).
Cook over moderate heat until pancetta is golden & crisp (about 5mins.)
Meanwhile , cook orecchiette in plenty of salted boiling water until nearly 'al dente'.
Add garlic to pan with pancetta and cook until soft , add chicory (rocket).
Cook until wilted .
Then add pasta and approx 1/2cup pasta water to pan with other ingredients.
Add salt to taste and drizzle over olive oil.
Serve with crusty bread and a nice red.
Preparation time approx 30 mins including cooking time.
You can also cook the chicory in with the pasta,
