Reviewed Crostata with Mushrooms and Pancetta

Feb 7, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This has become one of my "go to" recipes. I follow the directions to make the dough and literally use whatever meats, veggies, fresh herbs and cheeses I have on hand to make the filling.

This turned out great for me and my husband enjoyed it too! He said that it would be nice in the summer when we don't always want a hot meal and he could grill the steaks. I cut down on the mess by cooking the bacon and then the leeks in my grill pan. Then, I just wiped it out before cooking the steaks. I also made the dressing with my immersion...
