    Bakabeth's Note:

    This evolved from my recipe for Carbonara from the Food and Wine pasta cookbook. I was experimenting with ways to cut the cream and eggs and with a couple of other tweaks this is where I ended up! It definitely stands on its own for a meal, particularly if you add more veggies, but I also use it as a side dish at times. Prosciutto works well too but make sure it gets really crispy. With the wine, you are going to add it to the bacon mixture 2 tablespoons at a time.

    1. 1
      Put on a pot of salted water to boil.
    2. 2
      Heat up a large skillet over medium. Spray lightly with cooking spray.
    3. 3
      Add chopped bacon and stir. Let bacon cook about 5 minutes until it starts to brown and bacon grease gets released into pan.
    4. 4
      Add shallots, garlic, pinch of red pepper flakes and 1/4 tsp black pepper. Stir and cook until shallots and garlic begin to brown, about 2 more minutes.
    5. 5
      Add first 2 tbsp of red wine and carefully scrap down the pan to make sure all the little bits are being picked up. Let cook 2-3 minutes and repeat, adding another 1/4 tsp of black pepper.
    6. 6
      Meanwhile, add pasta to boiling water and cook per instructions. Add sugar snap peas 1 min, 15 seconds before pasta cooking time is up. (This will make them tender crisp. Change cooking time if you like them more/less tender).
    7. 7
      Repeat the process with the wine until it has all been used, adding additional salt and pepper to taste.
    8. 8
      Once all wine has been added, move heat to low/medium low. Add 1 tbsp red wine.
    9. 9
      Drain pasta/snow peas and add into skillet. If your skillet is not large enough this can be done in a new bowl. Thoroughly combine bacon mixture with pasta, really scrapping the sides of the pan to make sure all the flavors are incorporated.
    10. 10
      Add 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese and 2 tbsp fresh parsley. Mix again.
    11. 11
      Serve and enjoy! I usually keep a cup of cheese on the table for people to add more as they see fit.
