      This was a very quick and easy one-dish meal. I'd never tried pancetta before, so it was a different taste for me. I would like to try it with chopped Canadian bacon, which would also be lighter. I loved the asparagus in this dish, and the sauce was very nice. Thanks for posting Sugared Almond.

      very nice. not too heavy but still filling. not hard to make at all, i did use egg substitute instead of egg yolks, but that was the only substitution i made. this was a very good end of the week meal to make!
