If pancetta is too expensive, by all means try other cured hams, or even boiled ham. I have used a new product from my deli called Italian Hot Ham, and the heat is absolutely perfect. And if you are wondering if there is a difference between Canadian split peas and green split peas.....no, there is not. Other than the color, they are equally interchangeable in any recipe, including this one.
