Spaghetti with Bacon & Sweet Peas

Whenever I’m in the mood for Italian food I always make my favorite dish spaghetti.  This recipe puts a little twist on it with a couple extra ingredients. Perfect for a quiet night with a glass of wine.


– 250 grams (around 9 oz) of Kings Own Spaghetti from Kings Food Markets.

– 4 slices of bacon

– 10 oz of frozen sweet peas

-1 medium size shallot

– 2 cloves of garlic

-1 spoon of olive oil

– salt and pepper to season



1. Set a large pot of salted water to boil and cook the pasta until al dente. Save the leftover water for later.


2. In a large skillet, cook the bacon over a medium fire until crisp (about 5-7 minutes).


3. When ready transfer with a slotted spoon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain the fat.


4. Chop the garlic.


5. Prepare the shallots.


6. Sautee the garlic and shallots with a spoon of olive oil, add sweet peas. Season with salt and  pepper and cook for a couple of minutes.


7. When ready add the pasta into the peas, shallots, and garlic mixture.


8. Add some of the leftover pasta water and cook for a minute or two.


9. Sprinkle with small chunks of bacon and cheese and serve immediately.


10. Don’t forget to crack open a bottle of your favorite red wine for the perfect pairing.


Bon Appetit!
