Throw in the pasta about a minute after the salt.3. Do NOT break the spaghetti! Even if they dont fit in the pan, the best way is to hold them in a bunch vertically and immerse. Let go and they will fan out in all directions, and as they soften will sink and cook just perfect.4. When the pasta is nearly ready (see packet of pasta for cooking time) shallow fry in a non stick pan the diced pancetta for only a couple minutes, it doesnt need more.5. Drain the pasta and throw it in the pan together with the pancetta and continue to fry it, adding a little glug of olive oil.
