Do NOT cook pancetta and sundried tomatoes for 5 min if you have a gas stove. 3 minutes was plenty. This was just okay, probably wouldn't make it again. It is very easy, though. Hope you like it more than we did.

This was the best pasta dish I have made in a while! Its got everything I like and its a cinch to throw together. I did halve the recipe as there is only two of us, but I won't make that same mistake again. The flavors compliment each other nicely and went well with a pino grigio I had. Thanks Karen!
