  5. Wow, this includes everything that I like, especially the pancetta! I know it's getting warmer here in LA but I'll still be sure to make this in the coming weeks. Thanks for an awesome recipe!

  6. I just made this for my in-laws, as they are staying with us for the weekend. They don't eat pork, so I used turkey bacon instead of pancetta, and it turned out fine. This was simple to make and tasted great. I would love the flavor even more with garlic, so next time, I will add minced garlic in with the shallots. Thanks so much for sharing this! Found it on Pinterest :)
