Pea and bacon pasta
  • Serves: 4

  • Skill level: Easy peasy

  • Costs: Cheap as chips

This deliciously easy pasta dish is a great way to use up frozen peas - and it only takes minutes to prepare


  • 350g (12oz) pasta shapes
  • 175g (6oz) frozen peas
  • 1tbsp olive oil
  • 225g (8oz) bacon pieces
  • 4tbsp half-fat crème fraîche

Add a couple of spoonfuls of pesto sauce with the crème fraîche for a richer flavour.


  1. Cook the pasta shapes in a large pan of boiling salted water for as long as it says on the packet, adding the frozen peas for the last 2-3 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large, deep frying pan and fry the smoked bacon pieces until browned. Drain the pasta and peas and add to the pan with the crème fraîche.
  3. Heat through gently, stirring all the time, until the crème fraîche melts and coats the pasta. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper and serve immediately.
