Pancetta, pasta & zucchini omelette

Method

  • Cook the pasta in plenty of lightly salted, boiling water until almost al dente. Drain well, toss in a little oil and set aside.
  • Then heat a little oil in a non-stick pan and gently cook the pancetta, garlic and zucchini until lightly coloured.
  • Beat the eggs with seasonings, 1-2 tbsp grated parmesan and the basil in a large bowl. Add the cooked pasta, mix until well combined and then add to the pan. Stir, cover and gently cook for 2-3 mins, until still wobbly in the centre.
  • Turn the omelette out onto a large plate and add a little more oil to the pan, if needed. Then slide the omelette back into the pan and cook for another minute or so.
  • To serve, slide the omelette onto the plate, sprinkle with a little extra parmesan and oil, and serve with a simple green salad on the side.
