    Oolala's Note:

    My friend is from Italy and she gave me this recipe recently. It is from her friend who wrote the cookbook "Pasta in a Wok" by Francesca D'Orazio Buonerba. She now living in Singapore. We love it! It goes well with a light red wine and some fresh Italian bread. Mangia! It really is delicious. I put in the optional ingredients.

      This was enjoyed by my family and will be on our table again! We liked the hint of heat from the crushed pepper and the chewy bits of pancetta. I chopped a large sweet onion which added loads of flavor. Yes it is "tomatoey" but that is a good thing for tomato lovers ;) Thanks Oolala!

      This recipe, which would be OK,is ruined by the excessive amount of tomatoes: 2 35-ounce cans! You can only taste tomato...
