Spaghetti with Pancetta & Breadcrumbs

Spaghetti with Pancetta & Breadcrumbs

At a time where NOTHING went to waste, not even stale bread. Nonna (grandmother)  had to make sure dinner was delicious and there was enough food for family & friends. 

The idea of breaking the stale bread into breadcrumbs and adding it to a pasta dish was simply brilliant. This frugal ingredient adds a salty crunchy texture that will totally change your pasta!

Here's the basic recipe.

Serves 2 - 4 depending on the amount of pasta you put. You'll need:
