Sofia Loren's Pasta Sauce With Onions and Pancetta

"This is a recipe that is more than the sum of it's parts. Bacon can be used instead of Pancetta making this a great "unexpected company" dish."

    I have been very remiss in not rating this a looong time before now. But, it truly doesn't appear that this recipe needs any more top ratings anyway :-)<br/>However......and nonetheless......this is a terrific recipe. Fast and Delicious and we have enjoyed the results many times over. The only change I've made is to cut back on the amount of onion and red peppers, but, other than that....I follow the recipe as it is written. Definitely a 5 Star recipe. Thanks so much for posting Salesgirl!

    This was a wonderful pasta recipe that is very reminiscent of bucatini all'amatriciana. I went a little heavy on the pancetta (using about 6 oz. diced). This is so easy to make and yet delivers a ton of flavor. Highly recommended! Made for Fall PAC 2012.

    Loved it! We absolutely loved it although I didn't have the exact ingredients and had to improvise. I used lemon-infused olive oil and an Italian chili pepper mix (chili pepper, garlic, salt, parsley, and chervil) instead of plain olive oil and red pepper flakes. We had it with bow tie pasta. I am definitely making this dish again.
