METHOD:

In a large pot, briefly cook pancetta on olive oil until slightly crisped. Add in onions and saute for a few minutes until translucent. Then add in garlic, chili and bell pepper and briefly cook to soften. Add diced tomatoes, basil, parsley, vinegar, salt, pepper, water and pasta and give everything a good stir.

As necessary, add in a bit more water until all of the pasta is submerged, bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and cook with a closed lid for 10-15 minutes, until pasta is cooked al dente, while stirring occasionally. Be careful not to overdo with stirring, as the pasta will break apart and become mushy. Also, the al dente pasta will finish up cooking as it cools down and soak up any extra liquid that might remain in the pot.

Ovo je jelo sa tjesteninom na čestom meniju kod nas doma. Zahtjeva minimalan trud i može se smutiti od stvari koje obično imamo doma. Ako vam treba nešto za nadopuniti meni za radni tjedan, ne trebate tražiti dalje. Osim toga, sve se kuha u istom loncu, što znači ekspresno čišćenje kuhinje.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 izdašne porcije / 6,21 kn po porciji / 24,82 kn za sve)

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

4-5 kriški pancete, narezanih na kockice (5,00 kn)

1 luk, narezan na kockice (0,50 kn)

3 češnja češnjaka, sitno nasjeckana (0,75 kn)

1 čili papričica, sitno nasjeckana (0,50 kn)

1 velika paprika babura, nasjeckana na kockice (2,00 kn)

1 konzerva sjeckane rajčice (7,00 kn)

1 žlica sušenog bosiljka (0,50 kn)

1 žlica sušenog peršina (0,25 kn)

1 žlica jabučnog octa (0,10 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,05 kn)

2 šalice vode (–)

350 g tjestenine (7,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

U velikom loncu kratko popržite pancetu na maslinovom ulju dok se lagano ne zahruska. Dodajte luk i prodinstajte koju minutu da bude staklast. Onda ubacite češnjak, čili i papriku, pa kratko kuhajte dok ne omekšaju. Na kraju dodajte rajčicu, bosiljak, peršin, ocat, sol, papar, vodu i tjesteninu te sve dobro promiješajte.

Po potrebi dodajte još mrvicu vode da sva tjestenina bude potopljena, pustite da zavrije, smanjite vatru na srednje nisku i kuhajte poklopljeno 10-15 minuta da tjestenina bude al dente, sve uz povremeno miješanje. Pazite da ne miješate previše jer će vam se tjestenina raspasti i razgnjeckati. Također, al dente tjestenina će se skuhati do kraja kako se bude hladila te će popiti ektra tekućinu koja vam je možda ostala u loncu.
