Spaghetti with Pancetta and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

  • SERVINGS: 4
  • FAST
  1. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 1/2 pound thickly sliced pancetta, cut crosswise into 1/4-inch strips
  3. 2 small red onions, sliced 1/4 inch thick
  4. 1/4 cup drained oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, cut into strips
  5. 2 tablespoons very finely chopped garlic
  6. 1/4 cup shredded basil
  7. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  8. 1 pound spaghetti
  9. Freshly grated Parmesan cheese, for serving
  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a large skillet. Add the pancetta and cook over moderate heat until softened but not browned, about 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the pancetta to a plate.
  2. Pour off all but 2 tablespoons of fat from the skillet. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil and heat until shimmering. Add the onions and cook over moderately high heat until just beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the pancetta and sun-dried tomatoes and cook over moderate heat for 5 minutes longer. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the basil and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Meanwhile, in a pot of boiling salted water, cook the spaghetti until al dente. Drain the spaghetti, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking water. Add the spaghetti to the skillet along with 1/4 cup of the cooking water and toss over moderate heat until combined. Transfer to a bowl and serve, passing the Parmesan at the table.
