   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2  cup           Coarsely chopped pancetta -- see * Note
      1/4  cup           Olive oil
    3                    Garlic cloves -- chopped fine
    1 1/2  pounds        Zucchini -- cut julienne,
                         and drained well
      1/2  cup           Whipping cream
      1/3  cup           Freshly grated Parmesan cheese
                         Salt -- to taste
                         Freshly-ground black pepper -- to taste
    1      pound         Dry pasta -- penne prefered
 
 * Note:  American bacon will work, but the flavor is very different.
 Heat a large frying pan and saute the pancetta until clear.  Remove the meat
 and fat from the pan. Drain and discard the fat and set the meat aside. Add
 the olive oil to the pan and saute the garlic for just a moment.  Add the
 well-drained zucchini and saute over high heat until the zucchini is hot but
 not mushy. Add the cream and stir. Cook the pasta (I prefer penne with this
 dish) and toss the above with the cooked pasta, adding the pancetta, cheese
 and salt and pepper to taste.
