Hi, This is for me, in terms of a recipe mystery. Too much salt BUT, no salt per se apart personal choice in part. Possible solution and, in pasta tomato sauces, I have used often before. I hope helps others. it works for me. cheers.

This meatballs and sauce recipe uses a lot of ingredients, but returns the effort with a lot of bright flavors.

Hi, recently, Summerpls gave me a great review. I thank her greatly. re the recipe but said too much salt. However, I was confused.!! Salt in the meatballs is to personal taste and per se, there is no salt used in the sauce. So, "que pasa", what happened. 1.---- Bacon/pancetta contains salt in varying degrees. This could affect the flavour depening on bacon used. Some bacon can be extremely salty. Pancetta is not!!!!. 2. ... In cooking the sauce for intensity, which I thought fine, I have discovered that in intensifying, it can give a salt like taste, not salt but intense flavour. I added a touch, to taste, of sugar and mixed well. Problem solved. Turned out great. Possible solution to a, for me, complexing problem. Hope helps any other brave soul trying the recipe. cheers.

I have never even seen pancetta. Is it by the bacon in our grocery stores here in US? (asking anyone who is reading this) Is this an ingredient that others are used to using here and I have just not noticed all my life? Am I really missing something good?

Indiana Peggy, I do not find pancetta often, but it is near the bacon here. I had made this when it was a personal recipe.... I very seldom add salt to recipes. So I did not find this salty at all. I have made this several times and it is very good.
