This turkey dish is good, but nothing too special. The sauce doesn't really get too thick - I wanted it to be more like a gravy or something. It could have used a little slurry to make it nice and thick. The other weird thing is that you get the pancetta nice and crispy, but then let it soak in wine and broth, so it goes back to being soft. I'd suggest removing it before adding the liquid, and then sprinkling it on top of the final dish.
