I am a big fan of simple pastas. They are filling, quick and usually fairly inexpensive. Sometimes they are even remotely healthy! I saw this one in a recent issue of Cooking Light and thought it sounded right up my alley. I was right! The only changes I made were that I toasted the pine nuts on the stove and sautéed the pancetta in the same skillet instead of in the oven. I love the brightness of the lemon juice so much that if I make this again, I’ll probably zest the lemon before juicing it and add the zest at the very end. The cavatappi pasta is so much fun – little corkscrews of macaroni. So cute! I love all of the different shapes of pasta that you can try – I’m a little obsessed actually. I have a hard time passing up a fun shaped pasta in the grocery store. I have to limit myself. Seriously. Anyways, this was a great weeknight meal that is inexpensive and comes together quickly. Give it a try!
