Pasta, Peas and Pancetta

  • 1/4 cup Extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 ounce pancetta
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 bunch green onion (whites and about 2 inches of greens thinly sliced)
  • 10 oz box frozen peas, thawed
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1  pound spaghetti
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
Cook the pasta according to directions on the box for less than 1 less minute then the box indicates! Just as it is done, reserve 1/2 cup pasta water for cooking with.
In a large skillet, heat olive oil over med heat and cook pancetta until most of the fat has rendered; add the garlic and green onion and saute until soft (about 2 mins).  Add peas and pasta water and cook another 2 minutes. Add pasta to pan, toss with salt and pepper, then plate and top with Pamesan cheese before serving.
