This dish is salty because of the broth, pancetta and Parmesan, so do not add additional salt. Leave out the pancetta and Parmesan if you want to make it less salty.
*you won’t need the butter and olive oil if you are using pancetta or bacon
**You can also put pasta into your prepared dish and pour the sauce over all and then stir to combine.
