Name of Recipe: Asparagus, Pancetta & Rocket Linguine adapted from this recipe on allrecipes.com.au
Number of People: 4 serves
Ingredients:  
200-300g  linguine
8 small rounds of pancetta or 4 rashers bacon
200 - 300g chicken breast cut into cubes

Shaved or grated parmesan to serve.

Preparation:
Cook the linguine in 1200mls boiling water in the TMX for 12 mins/100o/reverse/speed 1
Drain and place in the thermosaver.
Whilst the pasta is cooking, pan fry the pancetta slices until crisp. Drain on a paper towel and break into small pieces.  Set aside. Add the diced chicken to the same pan and cook, stirring for a few minutes. Add this to the pancetta then place both in the thermosaver with the pasta.
Drop the cloves of garlic onto blades running at speed 7 for a few seconds. Add the olive oil, asparagus pieces & sliced mushrooms.
Saute 5 mins/100o/reverse/speed 1. Pour the contents of the TM bowl into the thermosaver.

This can be made without the addition of the chicken and mushrooms - it is a tasty, light summer pasta.

To be honest it would not usually be mine but when you get things in your fruit/veg boxes that you haven't used before, you have to go off searching for something to do with it.  Not hot enough for some of the nice salads I found for the rocket so I thought I'd try this one even though I like my pasta with sauces generally.  Pleasantly surprised with the finished dish and no complaints from DH so that was a bonus.

Yum! I made the linguine from scratch which made the meal. Used 60g rocket, 40g spinach as wasn't good at guessing 100g. I had to go up to our community garden plot to get it. Spinach was in our garden and easier. Thanks Judy.

Thanks for the review INAID. Home made pasta has to improve the taste, I take my hat off to those of you who make your own.  I'm too lazy unfortunately.

It's definitely worth it Judy. But I do it the easy way. I have a Kitchenaid mixer with pasta attachments. No hard manual labour lol.
