Sautéed asparagus, pancetta and rocket tossed in pasta with rocket and lemon juice make a simple flavourful dinner with minimal cooking. I often use spaghetti for this and you can substitute any pasta. Serve with grated parmesan if liked.
Altered ingredient amounts. i used spinach instead as rocket is not is season, add while tossing everything together - 22 Jun 2009
Altered ingredient amounts. From the perspective of not being an asparagus lover, I have to say..this was great! I doubled the garlic, and sauteed the asparagus a couple of minutes more than called for. Skipped the olive oil entirely and used the bacon drippings for cooking the veggies. Very light, tasty. I served it with citrus-marinated chicken, but probably will skip that in the future and just go for the pasta. Thanks for the yummy combination of flavors! - 29 Sep 2008
This is really good if you cook it just right. I find it easier to cut/crush everything before starting on your bacon and noodles. Otherwise it was fun to make and good to eat! - 31 Jul 2015
