    frostyprecious's Note:

    Easy to make and all in one pan. My kind of recipe. I have not tried this yet, but as soon as I get the thick-cut bacon, I am going to try it. Can be a nice meal or a heavier side dish. This is a recipe from USAWeekend and is by Nigella Lawson.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Warm the oil in a heavy pan that will take everything later; a Dutch oven or saucepan of 10 inches diameter should be plenty big enough.
    2. 2
      Add the pancetta and cook, stirring until it becomes crisp and bronzed, then add the peas and stir for a minute or so until the frozen look leaves them. If using thick-cut bacon and there is too much oil in pan, i think i would pour off until 2 Tbsp left before adding the peas.
    3. 3
      Add the pasta and turn it about in the pancetta and peas, then pour in the boiling water.
    4. 4
      Add salt cautiously (the pancetta and bacon are salty as is the Parmesan later); then turn down heat and let simmer for 10 minutes uncovered, though check on it a couple of times and give a stir or two, to stop it from sticking and see if you need to add a little more water.
    5. 5
      When it's ready, the risotto should be soft and starchy and the water absorbed.
    6. 6
      Beat the butter and Parmesan cheese into the pan, check the seasoning, and serve warm.
    7. 7
      Note: to make garlic flavored oil, add a peeled garlic clove to regular olive oil and cook until golder,discard garlic, use the oil.
