"Restaurant Impossible's" Robert Irvine makes a fast and easy pancetta and mushroom sauce that will make any pasta a little extra-something special.
Robert likes to serve this sauce over his Ricotta Gnocchi. If you prefer a traditional ragu, check out his Meat Ragu.
In a large pan, add 1 tablespoon butter over medium-high heat. Add pancetta and render until crisp. Add mushrooms and cook, undisturbed, for 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the shallot, garlic, capers, and rosemary, and cook for 1 minute more, then finish with the lemon juice. Add the white wine and let it cook off, then add the stock and cook until reduced by half. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons butter and chopped parsley, then season with salt and pepper to taste.
In a pot of boiling, salted water, cook the gnocchi for 1 to 2 minutes, until they float to the top, and transfer to the sauce. Fold in the parmesan by swirling the mixture gently, adding gnocchi cooking water to loosen, if needed.
