    Little Italy's Note:

    This recipe is from Carpungnino, a small Italian town where there is a statue of a cat holding an umbrella. This pays tribute to the Ombrellai, or umbrella makers of this town. This makes for a tasty meal with some bruschetta.

      Oh my goodness! I had to use proscuitto since we don't have pancetta readily available here in Missouri, and I'll admit I'm not a big fan. And come to think of it, I don't like rosemary either lol. But this is honestly one of the BEST pasta dishes I have ever had in my life. I used 2lbs of tomatoes and thought it could use more sauce so I did add a can of drained diced tomatoes and it ended up perfect. This was soooo delicious. It will go into our weekly rotation! Thank you so much!
