PASTA AND BACON
1/2 pound dry angel hair pasta
1/2 pound bacon
1/4 cup minced onions or shallots
1/2 cup frozen peas*
4 large eggs
1/2 cup light cream
1/2 cup grated Parmesan, Asiago or Romano cheese
Black pepper to taste
Cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
Meanwhile, cut the bacon into 1/4-inch pieces. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon pieces until crispy. Remove the bacon and set aside on a paper towel.
Drain all but 2 tablespoons of the bacon fat from the skillet; add the onions and cook over medium heat until soft. Add peas and cook for 1 minute longer.
In a bowl, combine eggs, cream and cheese.
Add the bacon, cream mixture and cooked pasta to the skillet and cook until simmering, stirring to coat pasta. Cook until egg mixture is done.
Top with extra Parmesan cheese and freshly ground black pepper before serving.
* — May substitute 4 ounces of mushrooms
