    rosewater's Note:

    I saw Food Network's Giada make this simple and quick to put together dish and had to make it. I loved it! Sometimes, I substitute lean ham or canadian bacon for the panchetta.

      Quick, easy, tasty, not too expensive. Be careful with the amount of the red pepper flakes, a good basic, could use bacon easily if no pancetta.

      This could not have been any easier. I used bacon instead of pancetta and cooked the onion until it was almost caramelized. I served it over some spaghetti rigate and DH LOVED it. He said he couldn't really taste the bacon though. Oh well it was still good. :)

      Definitely simple, maybe too simple. I love pancetta, and this was the first time I've used it in a tomato base sauce. I agree with the previous review, something was missing so I added a tablespoon of butter to the sauce. I also added some dried oregano, but I think fresh herbs would have been a better choice. Thank you for posting this recipe.
