  • 1 (12 ounce) package linguine pasta

  • ¼ cup olive oil

  • 6 ounces pancetta bacon, diced

  • 5 shallots, chopped

  • 2 cups fresh sliced mushrooms

  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped

  • 2 pinches freshly ground black pepper, or as needed

  • 2 pinches dried oregano

  • ½ cup chicken broth

  • ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook linguine at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain, transfer back to the pot, and set aside.

  2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook pancetta in hot oil until just beginning to brown. Stir in shallots, mushrooms, garlic, pepper, and oregano; cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.

  3. Pour in chicken broth; bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, for 1 to 2 minutes. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 5 to 7 minutes.

  4. Strain liquid from the pan into pasta; toss to coat. Divide pasta onto individual serving plates, then top with equal portions of pancetta and mushrooms. Serve with Parmesan cheese and pepper.
