  • 1 lb. Orechiette Pasta
  • 6 thick-cut strips of bacon, chopped
  • 2 tsp. fresh chopped rosemary
  • ¼ - ½ tsp. crushed red pepper
  • 1½ cups frozen peas
  • Salt and pepper
Directions
  1. Set a large pot of salted water over high heat and bring to a boil. Cook the pasta to al dente, according to package instructions. Then drain.
  2. Meanwhile, set a large skillet over medium heat. Add the bacon and cook until red. Scoop the bacon out of the grease and place on a paper towel lined plate to drain.
  3. Pour the drained pasta into the remaining bacon grease. Add the rosemary and crushed red pepper. Stir and "fry" the pasta until the edges start to become crispy. Add the peas to the pasta and toss.
