    Kim127's Note:

    This comes from the April 2005 issue of Cooking Light. They recommend that you do not substitute bacon for the pancetta as the smoky flavor would overwhelm the peas. The unsmoked pancetta really balances the sweetness of the new peas. You can substitute frozen petite green peas for the fresh.

      This became an instant favorite. Wow. I never thought I'd like peas so much! I used pancetta from Trader Joes that was already diced. The recipe came together quickly and easily and is going into my Best of the Best file. Made for ZWT7 for the Golden Gourmets. Gratzie!

      What a delicious way to do peas. I omitted the sugar and, to my taste, it came out perfect. Fast and simple recipe that makes a great stand in for the ubiquitous potato or rice.
