      Very good flavor, but I wish there were more sauce. Next time will double. Par-cook the pasta and finish in the sauce so it soaks up some of the flavor. Also agree with another reviewer that garlic would be welcome in this dish.

      Great recipe! I made a few adjustments and am including them so I can repeat this wonderful dish. I doubled the pancetta, mushrooms, Madeira and chicken stock (because we like it a little saucier), and peas. I also added a little more pasta to use up the cellantini and rotini we had leftover. A note about the pasta - the rotini is kind of "soft" for this dish but the cellantini is outstanding in texture. To save time, I boiled the water and pasta while making the sauce and it worked great. The mushrooms were a little too many for the dish and hard to cook down even in the larger pan, so next time I'll use the 8oz recommended. The pancetta is great, but as another reviewer suggested, expensive - I think bacon would work as well and be more economical. I used a sweet vidalia onion, but next time I think I'll use a sharper yellow and increase to 1/2 cup. I might also throw in several cloves of garlic next time. I added a tablespoon of cornstarch dissolved in the cream in step 9 and highly recommend it if you like your sauce a little thicker. Hubby and 22 month old loved it, thanks for the keeper!

      Nice and easy recipe. I used pancetta, brown mushrooms and sweet peas. I do not cook with cream, so subbed it with half/half and used dried thyme. Delicious. :)
