"Easy Peasy" Peas with Spring Onion and Bacon

Cooking: 45min

Serves: 4

Difficulty: easy


This is the perfect side as it's very quick to make and everyone of the family loves it. The bacon adds a little cheekiness to it but if you are vegetarian try without it, tasty as well.


Mamma Flora’s Tip: If you find the pancetta (Italian bacon) even better as it’s more spicy, otherwise the streaky bacon you find at the supermarket is fine as well.


Ingredients:

  • 500gr frozen peas

  • 3 spring onions

  • 100gr bacon or pancetta

  • 3 table spoons extra virgin olive oil


Method:

  • Cut the spring onions and the bacon in small pieces
  • Pour the olive oil in a medium size pot and add the onions and the pancetta you have already cut
  • Gently fry, when you start smelling the fragrance of the onions and the pancetta, add the frozen peas. Stir it and add salt as per your taste
  • Cover and cook for 40-45 min. Make sure they don’t burn, so in case add half a glass of water. If needed you can add even more.
  • Stir it from time to time. So simple, so tasty ready to be the perfect pairing for your main!
