COOK'S NOTES FOR TAGLIATELLE WITH BACON AND PORK

Many of our recipes can be adjusted slightly to fit the requirements of your taste buds and we strongly encourage this. This recipe however is one that is best followed exactly, for the first attempt anyway.  The flavour taken on by the pork and the bacon and the way it combines with the tagliatelle is delicious.
The quality of the minced pork is key to this recipe, it needs to be as lean as possible. Do take the advice in the recipe to undercook the tagliatelle at first. When it is combined with the pork and other ingredients it will cook further and you will end up with tagliatelle that has the correct texture.

RECIPE INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 1

Heat the oil in the pan then put the onion, garlic and celery sprinkle with a little salt and return to a gentle heat. Let them cook gently without colouring, for about 8-10 minutes, they should sweat rather than fry.

If they start to fry, just add water, a tablespoon at a time until the heat is reduced.

 Sweat the onioin and celery

STEP 2

Add the chopped pancetta or bacon then cook for about another 6 minutes, adding water if necessary like before. Add the minced pork and turn up the heat. Don't brown the meat too much.

Add the wine and let it evaporate, then season. Add in 200ml/7fl oz water, cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes. Mix in a little more water if the mixture gets too dry.

 

While the meat is cooking, put a pan with plenty of water on to boil. Grate the Parmesan and zest the lemon.

When the water is boiling add the pasta. Place a lid on and bring back to the boil, stir well then reduce the heat so the water boils gently. Cook the pasta 2 minutes less than the recommended time as it will continue to cook when mixed in with the meat.

 

STEP 3

Drain the pasta in a colander and keep a little of the pasta water. Put the pasta back into the pan with the meat and mix well together over a low heat.

Put in the parmesan and toss well. Add some pasta water to dilute, or extra cheese to absorb excess liquid, and mix again.

Mix in lemon zest and parsley dish up immediately, serve with some garlic bread.
