It's a good recipe but you have to tweak it a bit. Use salt to taste, you may need more than it calls for, and I like to mix pancetta and bacon together. I also use Romano cheese and layer is as I put it in the bowl to serve, so you always get a bite. I may add a little cinnamon next time.
I don't know. Kind of tastes like squash mashed up on pasta - with some bacon. Just kind of bland. Maybe more cheese will help.
