This is a quite expensive dish that is high in calories as well. Several high-priced ingredients such as Ground Beef, Parmigiano-Reggiano CheesePancetta, and Portabella Mushrooms make up this dish as well as fresh herbs, wine and more. This is truly a festive meal since the calorie content is so high and there are so many ingredients. 

Possible substitutions would be a cheaper Parmesan cheese as opposed to Parmigiano-Reggiano, bacon instead of pancetta, sweet Vermouth instead of Red wine and bullion cubes and water instead of canned chicken broth.
