Pasta with Petite Peas and Bacon

Pasta with Peas and Bacon
  • Ingredients:
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 4 slices bacon, sliced crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 shallots, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 package ( about 10 ounces) frozen peas, thawed
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 1 package GF spaghetti or fettucini noodles 

Set a large pot of water to boil. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium until crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain (leave fat in skillet).

Add shallots to skillet; season with salt and pepper. Cook over medium, stirring occasionally, until they begin to soften, 1 to 2 minutes. Add peas and half-and-half; season with salt and pepper. Simmer until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes

Cook gluten-free pasta in boiling water until al dente, according to package instructions. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta water; drain pasta, and return to pot. Pour pea sauce over pasta; toss to combine, adding some reserved pasta water a little at a time to coat (if needed). Sprinkle 
with bacon, and serve immediately.
