Creamy Asparagus and Pancetta Penne



This Creamy Asparagus and Pancetta Penne sounds indulgent, but using whole-wheat pasta and more veggies than meat keeps things all in balance. The following video will explain the step by step instruction to cook it.

FYI: Pancetta is an Italian bacon made of pork belly meat, that is salt cured and spiced with black pepper, and sometimes other spices. Pancetta in Italy is often consumed raw. While Penne is a type of pasta with cylinder-shaped pieces. Penne is the plural form of the Italian penna, deriving from Latin penna, and is a cognate of the English word pen (from Wikipedia).
