Easy Fig and Pancetta Pasta with Ricotta

Serves 8
Time 30 min
This luscious pasta bridges the best flavors of late summer and fall, and you can toss it together in the time it takes to boil the water. For best results, use perfectly ripe figs that have a slightly jammy texture. The tender fruit melds beautifully with the peppery pancetta and nutty bite of whole wheat pasta.
