    Port in panna? I've never read that - sounds interesting! What does it do for the recipe - does it help make the mushrooms a little more 'mushroom-y' or was it just a nice change from the white wine mode? Just gotta give ya a '5' on this recipe since italian is my FAVE and anything w/cream, bacon, pasta, etc... how can it be WRONG?! :)

    I'm thinking of making panna tonight but using leftover ham and reg pasta instead of pancetta + tortellinis.

    Keep cooking and happy spring!
