1/3 Photos of Spring Peas With Pancetta
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.

- 2Add onion and garlic to the drippings in the skillet. Saute for 2-5 minutes until tender.
- 3Add peas, broth, sugar, salt and pepper. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes or until the peas are at the desired tenderness.
