Peas and Pancetta Pasta
Serves 2
Ingredients:
1 12 oz can of peas, drained or a large handful of frozen peas
3-4 strips of pancetta or bacon, diced
1/2 lb linguini pasta
1/2 cup half and half or heavy cream
1 lemon
Salt and pepper
1 teaspoon paprika (optional)
To Make:
Bring to boil 2-3 cups of water for the pasta. I usually use an electric kettle and then fill a pot once the water is boiling. Don’t forget the salt! Cook pasta according to package. 
In a large skillet, heat up a touch of oil and add the pancetta or bacon. Squeeze in 1/2 of the lemon. Cook for a minute or so. 
Add the cream and stir everything together. Turn the heat to medium-low and add the peas. Cook for 2-3 minutes until it gets creamy. 
Add the paprika and a dash of black pepper. Taste and see if it needs any salt. 
Add the pasta to the pan directly from the pot. Use tongs. 
Turn the heat off and continue stirring everything. Coat the pasta with the cream sauce. 
Serve with a wedge of the remaining half of the lemon. 
This is super easy and really delicious!
