Pasta With Bacon, Sugar Snap Peas and Red Wine

Recipe by Bakabeth
READY IN: 35mins




  • Put on a pot of salted water to boil.
  • Heat up a large skillet over medium. Spray lightly with cooking spray.
  • Add chopped bacon and stir. Let bacon cook about 5 minutes until it starts to brown and bacon grease gets released into pan.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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).
  • Repeat the process with the wine until it has all been used, adding additional salt and pepper to taste.
  • Once all wine has been added, move heat to low/medium low. Add 1 tbsp red wine.
  • 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.
  • Add 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese and 2 tbsp fresh parsley. Mix again.
  • Serve and enjoy! I usually keep a cup of cheese on the table for people to add more as they see fit.
