  • Meanwhile, heat a medium saucepan, over medium high heat, and saute shallots, in the olive oil, until they just begin to color; stir in heavy cream, reduce heat to a simmer, and cook until reduced by half, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Whisk in cheese until melted; stir in drained pasta.
  • Remove from heat and keep warm.
  • Drizzle the olive oil over the chicken and season with salt and pepper; sprinkle with parsley and rosemary.
  • Grill chicken, over medium heat, to an internal temperature of 165 degrees F; remove from heat, cover, and keep warm.
  • In a medium sized skillet, over medium high heat, cook pancetta until crisp, about 5 to 7 minutes; remove pancetta with a slotted spoon and set aside (leave fat in pan).
  • Sprinkle the bread crumbs into the pan and stir, until toasted, about 1 minute; remove from heat and drain bread crumbs on paper toweling.
  • Heat the macaroni base, over medium heat, until hot, stirring frequently.
