Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chopped pancetta

    These turned out great! I substituted chopped peppers and onion for the bacon/pancetta and lined the pan with parchment paper. The baking time was very accurate - will definitely make again. Add a green salad or fruit and you can have a complete meal anytime!
