Pasta Pancetta is our featured random meal of the day. This is an interesting random meal as in my mind the dish is "Bacon Pasta" which will be awesome. The good thing is that this dish is really more than just about the Pancetta. The dish gives us more of a complex taste than meets the eye. We start with Pancetta which is an Italian version of bacon. The main difference between Pancetta and bacon is that you get more of a smokey favor from bacon while the Pancetta gives more of a pure pork flavor. We then add caramelized onions and sundried tomatoes. The tomatoes and onions cut into the richness of the Pancetta and balances it out. Finally we add this awesome garlic cream sauce onto a wonderful tomato fettuccini pasta. The flavored fettuccini is the extra kick that really enhances this random meal.
