Creamy Courgette and Pancetta Pasta


Creamy Courgette Pasta with Pancetta

This is a quick and easy pasta dish packed full of flavour. The simple sauce is made from gently frying grated courgettes and garlic before stirring through creme fraiche and grated parmesan, which makes it lovely and creamy. The courgette sauce is then combined with cooked spaghetti before serving.

For a bit of extra flavour I added some grilled pancetta slices to the top of each bowl, which really enhanced the dish and gave it a nice crunch. Woodalls Charcuterie recently sent me some of their cured meats to try including the pancetta used here. The multi award winning Woodalls range currently includes 3 air dried hams, a cumberland salami (which is awesome on pizza) as well as this delicately smoked pancetta. Pork bellies are hand salted by master curer Colin Woodall and then allowed to rest for 7 days. They are then hung for a couple of days before being smoked. The product is air dried for a further 5 weeks and unlike  many pancetta's on the market can be eaten straight from the pack. I was really impressed by the quality of the products and I will definitely be seeking them out in the future.

We're off to Disneyland Paris for a few days so it will be a little quiet around here until next week! I hope everyone is having a lovely half term.
