Rigatoni al Forno with Pancetta, Artichokes, Crème Fraîche and Parmesan


This is my version of Niki Segnit’s wonderful pancetta and artichoke pasta in <i>The Flavour Thesaurus</i> – both my favourite cookbook, and my favourite pasta dish. This version has marginally less cheese and cream – I would direct you to her book for the unashamedly delicious and rib-sticking original. My amendments over the years are the result of not usually having enough ingredients, rather than any desire to go low-fat.
