Orecchiette Pasta with Peas and Bacon

Orecchiette Pasta with Peas and Bacon

love cooking. I love the creativity that comes with cooking.Last night has I was fixed on preparing Pasta alla Carbonara. Half way thru the cooking process of the onion-bacon mixture, I realized I had no wine on hand. Going to the store was not an option this late in the game. I did, as I always do, had heavy cream on hand. Like a said, cooking is using your creativity and with that, instead of the wine I used the heavy cream and added the peas to the boiling pot of cooking pasta.The dish was delicious and unfortunately no leftovers.TIP: Use a large skillet for the onion and bacon to cook into. Once the pasta is in the skillet, you want to have room to mix well and not fighting with it.Add more cream if you wish to have it creamier, that I all up to you.Do, however, scrape the bottom on the skillet as all the flavor sits.Bon Appetit!!Giangi
