    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Remove the pasta from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Thinly slice the mushrooms. Halve the zucchini lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise.

    2 Make the spicy breadcrumbs

    In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the breadcrumbs and half the chopped garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Turn off the heat and stir in as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Transfer to a plate; immediately season with salt. Wipe out the pan.

    Meanwhile, using your hands, carefully separate the pasta and add to the pot of boiling water. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). Turn off the heat. Reserving ½ cup of the pasta cooking water, drain thoroughly and return to the pot.

Add the remaining chopped garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened and the pancetta is cooked through. Turn off the heat.
