This was sooooo good. There were no left-overs and my husband is already begging me to make it again! Not sure I'll use the prosciutto next time (it was really expensive here)... thin ham would work just as well (or leftover chicken, for a change -- would even be awesome without the meat). Delicious! I made exactly as directed and it was a hit.
I am not normally a fan of pasta, but this was FANTASTIC! We've been noshing on Thanksgiving leftovers for a few days and needed something different. Wow, am I glad I made this. I followed the recipe exactly - except I accidentally bought sopressata instead of my planned pancetta (I'm not a proscuitto fan). I am 100% positive that this will be a hit with ANY similar product - ham, bacon, even pepperoni; the recipe is just that good. The leftovers (there wasn't much - lol!) are getting a stretch with the addition of some leftover Thanksgiving turkey - we're looking forward to it.
