Pancetta is an Italian unsmoked bacon available from delicatessens; pork belly cured in salt and spices then rolled into a sausage shape and dried for several weeks. It is used, sliced or chopped, as an ingredient rather than eaten on its own. Bacon can be substituted for the pancetta, if you prefer.
