When prosciutto, Italian for air-dried rather than smoked ham, isn't available, cook two extra slices of bacon instead. This rich and creamy pasta dish is as good or better than the popular restaurant version.

Cooked this tonight--it is delicious! I don't cook with wine, so substituted some chicken stock. It turned out great! I also used fresh fettuccine noodles instead of dried.
