PREVIOUS: Spaghetti with Broccoli NEXT: Spicy Maine Shrimp Sauce Over Pasta

Ingredients (13)

  • 8 medium yellow tomatoes diced
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon or a dash of red pepper flakes to taste
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley (1 for the sauce; 1 for a garnish
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil (2 to saute the tomatoes, and 1 to saute the pancetta and shallots)
  • 1 lb whole wheat pasta, I like just spaghetti, but use your favorite
  • 1 cup of chopped pancetta
  • 2 large shallots diced fine
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 scallions diced fine

This is amazingly quick and easy, sweet and a bit of spice. Healthy but still hearty. I serve this a whole wheat pasta and a little pancetta.


  1. 1Chop the tomatoes, pancetta, shallots, and scallions. Add the tomatoes and garlic to a large pan with the olive oil and saute on medium low for about 10-15 minutes until soft. Once the tomatoes are soft and broken apart add the basil, parsley, red pepper, sugar, salt and pepper to taste.
  2. 2In a seperate pan saute the shallots and pancetta in olive oil until the pancetta is browned. Add salt and pepper is needed and chicken broth.
  3. 3While the tomatoes and the pancetta simmer, cook the pasta according to directions.
  4. 4Drain the pasta and toss the pasta with the pancetta and onion mixture. Then top with the tomato sauce. Garnish with some scallions and parsley and possibly a drizzle of good olive oil.
