Pancetta & Peas

A simple dish with simple ingredients!

What you need:
1/4 lb. Panchetta - small cubes
Half Package Frozen Peas
Half Box Whole Wheat Angel Hair Pasta
(I Prefer Gia Russa Whole Wheat Angel Hair; great texture)
2 Cloves Garlic Minced
Red Pepper Flake to Tasting
1 tsp. Oregano or Italian Seasoning
1 tbs. Olive Oil
3 tbs. Extra Virgin Olive oil
Parmesan Cheese

Start heating water for pasta; cook and reserve 1 cup.

In a large skillet heat panchetta with the plain olive oil until browned.
Add garlic saute over low.
Add peas and reserved pasta water.
Scape up bits on bottom of pan.
Once peas are tender and water has reduced to almost less than half add pasta.
Add extra virgin olive oil and seasoning.
Season with salt and red pepper flake.
Toss pasta till well coated.
Plate and top with grated Parmesan.

Simply Delicioso!
