Very good recipe. I followed the recipe except for the last drizzle of oil. The pasta was very moist from the added water so I didn't think I needed it. I used basil instead of mint. I liked this but I think I should have used fresh basil. Mine was a little bland. It was really easy to make though. I also think pimentos or fresh sweet red peppers might add a bit of zing
Excellent Pasta Recipe, very easy to make and so delicious. Orecchiette are one of my favorite pasta. The green peas with their sweetness complete so well the more nutty taste of the garbanzo beans. The mint add just the right freshness to it and the bacon gives it a tasty salty flavor. At last the olive oil and the parmesan complete this dish with a wonderful Italian like touch. Should not be missed in your cookbook, too. Enjoy it!
