eringi ragout #2

eringi (3) Remember I re-created a favorite, eringi ragout?

Well, I recently had the dish at Capricciosa and realized they add pancetta to theirs.

So, I tried making this again adding pancetta (50 grams) and lessened the ground beef a little.

eringi I also served this with toasted baguette instead of over pasta.

I didn't have leftover creamy tomato soup like I used the first time making this, so instead I added 1 cup of canned diced tomatoes and a pinch of thyme.

eringi (2) NOTES: this was good! even more flavorful with the addition of the pancetta. You need to simmer it a little longer so that most of the liquid evaporates...I only wish I had had more baguette.

I forgot what pancetta was so I had to google it. Then I went, "Oooo yum!"

The Downtown comedian Matsumoto Hitoshi (mattchan) is a big fan of the Capricciosa chain. So I've been wanting to go, haha.
