After first downloading Let’s Cook I started browsing the recipes.  Oh my goodness there were so many good looking ones!!! It’s been a lot of fun to watch Fabio cook and read some of the tips.  I learned that cutting cherry tomatoes, is actually pretty easy!  Here’s what the app looks like. On the right is a scroll bar where you’ll find the video recipes, more recipes, and tips. On the left is Fabio. He gives you a little introduction, welcoming you to the App. Let’s Cook is a very friendly, easy to use app!
So for dinner one night last week we had some Fresh Fettuccine with Crispy Pancetta, Mushrooms, and Cherry Tomatoes. It was divine.  My kids ate it up like it was the best stuff ever, and Mark asked if there was more. We had no leftovers, a very odd occurrence in  our household. 
Don’t worry I’m not going to just leave you with the picture, and my review. Why don’t you try it for yourself? Here’s the recipe!

FRESH FETTUCCINE WITH CRISPY PANCETTA, SAUTÉED MUSHROOM AND CHERRY TOMATO
by Chef Fabio Viviani
Serves 2, double ingredients for 4 servings
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
                         
2 cups cherry tomatoes (20 small), halved and seeded
2 Tbsp. Bertolli® Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and fresh ground black pepper
2 ounces pancetta or bacon, diced
1 Tbsp. Bertolli® Extra Light Tasting Olive Oil
4 to 5 cloves garlic, finely chopped
12 ounces oyster mushrooms, very thinly sliced
1/2 cup chicken broth, divided

Preheat oven to 475°. Drizzle tomatoes with Bertolli Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Season with salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste. Arrange in baking pan and roast 5 to 10 minutes or until wilted.

Add roasted tomatoes and 1/4 cup broth to sauté pan. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered.
Add fettuccini to boiling water over high heat, stirring occasionally until it floats, approx. 5 to 8 minutes.
Add cooked fettuccine to sauté pan and remaining broth. Increase heat and drizzle with Bertolli Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Add parsley. Simmer 2 to 5 minutes.
