using bacon instead of proscutto?

Hi there,

I can't go to the store because of the virus - what about using uncooked or cooked bacon in the bouquet Garni instead? Thanks so much.

Hi Amanda! Bacon would work great (I bet the smokiness will be really nice). Stay safe!

Thanks for the quick response and greatly appreciate your help - cooked or uncooked?

Hi Amanda, I would add it uncooked, and it'll release its flavor as the sauce cooks

Thanks so much, Josh. Hope you all have a good day cooking yourself and thank you so much from sunny but isolated California.
