INGREDIENTS

HOW TO MAKE

  • Peel the courgettes, wash them and cut them into very thin slices.

 

  • Peel and chop the garlic clove.

 

  • Heat a few tablespoons of oil in a large pan and brown the garlic. Then add the courgette slices, a generous pinch of salt and ground pepper and continue cooking over a medium heat.

  • In the meantime, in a small frying pan, brown the cubes of guanciale without seasoning for a few minutes over a high heat. When they are golden and crispy, transfer them to the pan with the courgettes.

 

  • While the vegetables are cooking, cook the pasta in plenty of boiling salted water flavoured with saffron. 

 

  • Drain the pasta when it is "al dente" and toss it for a few moments in the sauce pan. Mix all the ingredients together well.

 

  • Serve the pasta with courgettes, bacon and saffron on individual plates.
