An Italian bacon that is cured with salt and spices, but not smoked so it is moister and has a mellower flavor. Pancetta is flavorful and slightly salty and comes in a sausagelike roll. Commonly used for stews and braises by rendering the fat and using it to cook other ingredients. Also a fine savory addition to stuffings.

Pancetta is Italian pork belly cured with salt, pepper,and other spices,air-dried up to four months, tightly rolled in a cylinder.
