Insalata con Spinaci e Funghi (Spinach and Mushroom Salad)

Recipe from: Adriana's Italian Gourmet Cookies
Servings: 4

4 thick slices pancetta
4 cups baby spinach, cleaned
8 ounces white mushrooms, cleaned and thinly sliced
salt and freshly ground pepper
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

Preheat oven to 350°F. Place the pancetta on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and bake for 15 minutes, or until it's golden and crispy. Meanwhile, place the spinach in a large salad bowl, and add the mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper, and toss. In a separate bowl, whisk the olive oil and vinegar until emulsified. Season with salt and pepper, add it to the salad, and toss. Remove the pancetta from the oven, and cut it into large pieces. Serve the salad topped with the warm pancetta.
