    This 5-Ingredient dish is super easy to make, and full of absolutely amazing flavor!


    • 250 g whole wheat spaghetti or pasta of your choice
    • 250 g pancetta, cut into small sticks
    • 500 g asparagus, ends trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces
    • 20 ml dry white wine
    • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese


    Sauté pancetta in a large pan over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until crispy.
    Remove pancetta with a slotted spoon and set aside
    Add asparagus to the pan and sauté in the pancetta grease for about 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until almost cooked.
    Slowly add the white wine to deglaze the pan. Continue cooking for 5 minutes or until the wine has reduced by about half.
    Cook the pasta in a large pot according to package instructions. Drain, but reserve ¼ cup of the pasta water for later (if needed).
    Add the pasta, pancetta and ¼ cup Parmesan cheese to the sauté pan with asparagus, and toss until combined. Sprinkle pasta with the remaining Parmesan cheese and serve immediately.
