Sometimes the best dishes are the simplest. This al dente pasta recipe is full of buttery flavor and accented with peas, bacon and Romano cheese.
This recipe was originally created as part of our Spring For Flavor recipe feature.
8 oz linguini
2 tbsp Smart Balance® Butter and Canola Oil Blend
2 tbsp Smart Balance® Cooking Oil
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 cup of fresh or frozen peas, thawed
salt and ground pepper
1/4 cup pecorino Romano, grated
3 slices center-cut bacon, cooked and crumbled
Set a large pot of salted water to boil.
In a large pan, heat butter and oil over medium heat; add garlic, stir occasionally until they begin to soften, 1 to 2 minutes. Add peas; season with salt and pepper and cook about 2 minutes.
In the meantime, cook pasta in boiling water until al dente, according to package instructions.
Reserve 1 cup pasta water; drain pasta, and add to the pan with peas. Toss well and add some reserved pasta water a little at a time to coat, and pecorino Romano. Toss with bacon pieces and serve.
