This gigli pasta recipe is definitely a 5 star pasta dish that everyone must have. It had the most tender pasta you could imagine and the pumpkin and pancetta were almost heavenly. It was astonishing to know that I could make such a delicious meal with only a handful of ingredients and just a little bit of time. This is on our weekly dinner list for now on.
