    Arrange 1/2 the pancetta in a single layer between 2 sheets of paper towel, and place on a heatproof microwave-safe plate. Cook on High/800watts/100% for 1 1/2 – 2 minutes or until light golden. Repeat with the remaining pancetta. Set aside until the pancetta cools, then break into large pieces.

  • Step 3
    Stir in the stock, pumpkin and carrots. Cover with a lid or double layer of plastic wrap. Cook on High/800watts/100% for 5 minutes, then Medium/500watts/50% for 7 minutes.
