This is great as a party appetizer or a full meal. Tasty, full of flavor and good for you. The crunchy crust is what I really like! You can play with the veggie toppings and cheeses for a great meal that is fast and delicious! Our favorite quick meal!

oops --- missed a bit. cheers. sorry ---- When the pasta is almost ready, put the pan with the pancetta back over medium-high heat; When done, drain and pour the pasta into the serving bowl and toss vigorously until it is well coated with the egg mixture; Pour the contents of the frying pan into the bowl, toss again, and serve immediately. Great with crusty bread.
