Pancetta - approx. wt.

(Volpi) - 4 lbs

Pancetta is often referred to as Italian bacon. However, unlike American bacon, which is most often smoked, pancetta is the unsmoked pork belly that is cured in salt and spices. Pancetta adds a distinctive pork flavor to pasta and several other dishes, without infusing into them bacon's smokiness. In the USA, it is a common substitute for guanciale, which is a traditional base for many classic pasta dishes, like carbonara and all'amatriciana.
