Rigatoni with Fresh Tomatoes & Pancetta

1 pound rigatoni or similar pasta, preferably multigrain or whole wheat

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 ounces pancetta, diced (optional)

1 small onion, finely chopped (about 1 cup)

4 large garlic cloves, minced

2 pounds fresh plum tomatoes, halved, seeded, and coarsely chopped

1/4 cup chopped fresh basil

Salt and pepper to taste

4 ounces mozzarella cheese, cut into small cubes

Freshly grated Parmesan or Romano cheese

Rigatoni with Fresh Tomatoes & Pancetta


Cook the pasta according to package directions for al dente. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large saute pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pancetta and onions and sauté until the onions are softened, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté another minute. Add the tomatoes, salt and pepper. Sauté until the tomatoes are broken and juicy, about 10 minutes. Add the basil and taste for seasoning. Drain the cooked pasta and add to the sauce. Add the mozzarella cheese and toss well. Cover and heat until the cheese is slightly melted. Serve immediately, passing the Parmesan separately.


This was really good, great flavor and easy to make. The only thing I would do differently next time is to peel the tomatoes. We ended up with tomato skins throughout the dish and that can turn the kids off. Great flavor!
