Made this for dinner twice so far, and the second time it tasted even better. Cheesey and smokey works so well together in a rich tomato sauce:D Regina Schrambling says "starch is comfort" and "cheese is seduction" and when they're combined the result is pure pleasure. BF and I have to agree wholeheartedly. I can usually only find crushed tomatoes in puree, and that worked out very well so I added that as an option. I am vegetarian so I substituted vegetarian bacon for pancetta. Another recipe of the week from The Week magazine, originally from LA Times.
