  • Meanwhile, for tomato sauce: In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion, pancetta and garlic. Cook and stir for 3 to 4 minutes or until pancetta begins to brown. Remove saucepan from heat. Add the wine. Return to heat and cook on medium-high heat, scraping up all the brown bits in the pan, about 3 minutes or until almost all the liquid evaporates.

  • Stir in the undrained tomatoes, the 1/4 cup parsley, oregano, salt, crushed red pepper and black pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 20 to 30 minutes or until sauce is thickened to desired consistency, stirring occasionally.

  • Add pasta to hot tomato sauce. Toss to combine. Or, toss the hot pasta with Classic Pesto instead of the tomato sauce. (If pasta is dry, add a little of the reserved pasta water to sauce-coated pasta for desired moistness.)

  • Sprinkle each serving with additional snipped parsley and top with Parmesan cheese. If you like, top each serving of pasta with Rosemary-Crusted Grilled Salmon and/or Grilled Summer Squash. Serve immediately.

Reduce heat to medium. Place squash pieces on grill rack over medium heat. Cover; grill as above.) Transfer squash to a cutting board; cool slightly. Cut squash into 1/4-inch thick slices. Serve with pasta.

  • In a small bowl combine rosemary, parsley, green onion, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, black pepper and 1 clove minced garlic. Coat both sides of fish with rosemary mixture.

  • For a charcoal grill, arrange heated coals around a drip pan; test for medium heat above drip pan. Place fish on the greased grill rack over drip pan; cover and grill for 14 to 19 minutes or until fish begins to flake when tested with a fork. (For a gas grill, preheat grill.
