So, here’s one of those left-over meals that I alluded to earlier. I used a bunch of the ingredients from my Pasta à la Vodka to whip up lunch the next day for Oliver and I (the fresh pasta and pancetta).
This is so, SO good!
Oh yeah, it only takes about 5 minutes to make too. Get on this!
I didn’t measure anything though, so don’t feel like you have to either. Just use what you have on had and guesstimate your amounts. Don’t be scared. I am someone who absolutely hates to cook without a recipe to work off of and a game plan, but for this you really don’t need it.
Oh, also, no in-progress pictures, because my Nana was over while I was cooking and I was too busy talking to her. I’ll just give you a quick run down.
Get some water boiling then toss in your pasta and a handful or two of frozen peas.
Fry up some pancetta until nice and crispy. Add your pasta and peas, along with some grated Parmesan cheese (I just keep that pre-grated Kraft stuff stocked in the fridge for this kind of thing), a dab or two of butter and a splash of heavy cream. I like to season with a few hits of fresh cracked pepper too.
Toss it all together with some tongs and serve.
I’ll throw in the recipe print-out, but it’s really just an ingredient list:
