Place dried porcini mushrooms in medium bowl. Add 2 cups hot water. Let

Heat oil in heavy large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add duck meat and

fat. Add onions and pancetta. Saute until golden, about 5 minutes. Add
chicken livers and porcini and saute 2 minutes. Add bay leaves, rosemary
and cloves; saute 5 minutes. Add wine and simmer until almost all liquid
evaporates, stirring often, about 4 minutes. Mix in tomato paste. Add broth
and reserved mushroom soaking liquid, leaving any sediment in bowl. Bring
to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until meat is tender, about 1 hour.

Discard bones, bay leaves, rosemary and cloves from sauce. Skim any fat
from surface. Simmer sauce until thickened to sauce consistency, about 10
minutes. Season with salt and pepper. (Can be made 1 day ahead; chill.
Bring to simmer before using.)

Cook pasta in large pot of boiling salted water until tender but still firm
to bite. Drain well. Transfer pasta to large bowl.

Spoon half of duck sauce over pasta. Toss pasta briefly to coat. Spoon
remaining duck sauce over. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve.
