    SoupHound's Note:

    This is an approximate verision of Carrabba's. This is served in the restaurant as a side dish but would be just fine as a main dish when pancetta is added in. Cavatappi pasta is a short tubed corkscrew or S-shaped pasta. It can be hard to find but I was able to find it called "Twists" by the pasta brand DaVinci (blue bag).

      Thanks sooo much for posting! This was perfect. My husband always orders this with Chicken's his favorite meal there! So, tonight I made this with Chicken Bryan (Original Carrabba's Chicken Bryan (Not Copycat!)) and he was sooo happy! We both love pancetta so I added it in. I think that it's a must in this recipe. Thanks!

      Great recipe- used Parmesan/Romano blend that i had on hand. I didn't add any meat and served it along with Parmesan chicken breasts and garlic green beans. Excellent!

      Very great base recipe! If you don't have pancetta, try to substitute canadian bacon. But the meat, onions, and garlic together really pack a lot of flavor! I also live to add a little fresh chopped Italian parsley and a pinch of lemon zest for freshness!
