    Delicious!! This recipe was easy and tasty. I used bacon instead of pancetta, and I cut away the excess fat. I also added one clove of garlic. This side was just fabulous! My new veg go to!  -  19 Nov 2011

    Used different ingredients. Possibly add some garlic just to make them monumental. I used 1 teaspoon of the Lazy Garlic.  -  12 Dec 2010
