It looks divine, but do I really have to use chicken livers in the ragu? Will it be okay without them , or just not the same? I'm a little shivery at the thought of them is really what this is about blush. Will I ruin it by leaving them out?

I put pancetta cubes in mine. Does she use those? The livers will make the sauce richer but it will still be good without them.

I made it with the chicken livers once rather than my usual pancetta and it was not nice.

Good . I have pancetta, I'll use that only. I'm glad to hear at least one "chicken livers were not nice"! Thanks ladies.

I did go to the bother of buying chicken livers first time I made this and I couldn't even taste them (although it did add a certain depth to the sauce, it wasn't an 'eww, liver' kind of depth iyswim).

Have never bothered since and no-one has complained...
