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.
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.
3While the tomatoes and the pancetta simmer, cook the pasta according to directions.
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.
In order to feed my pasta-loving soul, maintain my calorie intake, and nourish my body with veggies, I turn to these alternatives. From spaghetti squash, to zoodles, to swoodles, and more, I honestly can't get enough.
Sweet Potato Casserole
This is not your mother's sweet potato casserole (and that's a good thing). This version is only lightly sweetened, tender rather than gloppy or mushy, and accented with a hint of ginger. It's still topped with browned, gooey marshmallows, though, because some traditions are worth sticking to.
