This is an American recipe. A cup measure is a measure of volume, not weight. The measure of the ingredients in this recipe that call for cups or fractions of cups all use the same measuring cups. I use the individually sized cups rather than a graduated larger cup. As I said in my earlier post, it is equal to 237 ml.
These measures are not critical. If each is a little over or under, the recipe will not suffer. You may find, after making this recipe, that you want to change some of the quantities to suit your preference.
The sauce is slightly thick, not thick like a flour based gravy.
The pancetta will add another flavor note to the dish that my version of the recipe lacks. I think it's worth a try. I may add it to my recipe next time around.
