Fresh Porcini mushrooms would be the best choice for this recipe. If you are using dried mushrooms, pour them in a cup of warm water for about 30 minutes before draining (discard the obtained liquid) and adding to the sauce.
If you cannot find Porcini mushrooms, fresh, dried or canned mushrooms of your choice, may be used.
We suggest the use of Italian cubed Pancetta for this recipe. If you prefer, cubed bacon or baked ham may be used.
