How to Make Shells, Cannellini Beans and Pancetta

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large pan, add some olive oil and saute the garlic. Once the garlic turns golden, add the rosemary and the pancetta cut into small cubes.
  2. Let the pancetta color just a bit on all sides and add the white wine and hot pepper as desired. Let the alcohol completely evaporate.
  3. Drain the beans and add them to the pan and let everything cook for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add the tomatoes and continue to cook for an additional 10 minutes on medium heat.
  5. Separately cook the pasta and remove it when it al dente.
  6. Add to the pan the pasta and continue cooking everything together for 2-3 minutes by tossing all the ingredients. Add some pecorino cheese and toss a little more.
  7. Serve with a few drops of extra-virgin olive oil.
