Is it pancetta affumicata (smoked)? Or dolce? (mild)
Usually pancetta can replace where bacon goes beautifully, personally I prefer smoked version for many dishes, but the mild one is better for certain dishes, usually with delicate flavoured dishes. (For spaghetti carbonara for instance, pancetta dolce works better.)
Also either wrap or use as stuffing for roasts with fresh herbs, when you use a lean cut. It adds a very rich flavour.

gotta have it for linguini alla putanesca (pancetta onions garlic olives capers anchovies) it's just the best sauce out there!

pancetta will go with any roast vegetable ...roast together inthe oven. drizzle evoo and balsamic vinegar at the end. sprouts! asparagus! cauliflower, whatever. great stuff!
