Parmesan, Pancetta & Olive Oil Popcorn (Best Seasoning!)

Parmesan and pancetta popcorn is a ridiculously delicious and easy hors d’oeuvre, appetizer or snack! Popcorn seasoned with olive oil, finely grated parmesan cheese, crispy pancetta and black pepper is a must-try for popcorn lovers. It’s like the carbonara of popcorn!

Grocery store tomatoes this time of year are usually pretty pale and pathetic (winter tomatoes clearly make me bitter haha).

I grew up eating Dad’s saltimbocca: thinly sliced chicken wrapped in prosciutto and sage, pan seared and topped with a luscious diced tomato sauce. It’s a delicious Italian dish that requires a few simple ingredients to make a dish that literally “jumps in the mouth,” which is the translation for Saltimbocca in English! My dad and I are cooking up the best Chicken Saltimbocca around! Watch him teach me how…
