Mis a Place
Dice 1/2 large onion
Dice 1/4 cup of Pancetta/lonza/Prosciutto or bacon
Grate 1/4 cup of pecorino or parmesan
1 Bunch of basil diced
1/4 cup of white wine
1/2 cup of cream
Pasta water as needed
Place a large pot of water on the stove and bring to a boil.
Place a saute pan on the stove on medium heat, add a dollop of butter, add the onion and pancetta mixture. Saute until translucent
Add 1/2 tablespoon of of FG pasta flour to the pan and mix. Cook for 20 seconds or until you start to see browning.
Add the white wine and stir. Cook for 30 seconds. Mixture in the pan will start to thicken.
Remove the pan from the heat. Add the Cream, pecorino and the diced basil. Check the seasoning may need some salt and pepper. Add more cheese for a deeper flavour.
Add the pasta to the water. Should take about 4 minutes. Drain the pasta (save 1/4 cup of the pasta water its a Italian chef trick)
Add the pasta to the sauce and return to the heat. Saute for about 20 seconds. (this is a critical step as it makes the pasta absorb the sauce and helps integrate the noodles into the flavour of the sauce.
