Fusilli Pasta with Crispy Pancetta and Peas

When we lived in Nicaragua last year adopting my daughter, I started craving good Italian food. The only decent Italian restaurant in Granada was a pizza joint, so I had to make some pasta myself. We lived in a hotel/condo complex and I made this pasta dish for some American friends, my visiting family, and the hotel workers. I have since made this over and over again. It’s so easy that you can find all the ingredients at any grocery store. Trust me, I was able to buy the ingredients in Nicaragua! This pasta comes together quickly, looks beautiful, and the leftovers are almost as good as the original dish. Next time you are craving Italian, give this a try in your kitchen… whatever country you may be in.

Fusilli Pasta with Crispy Pancetta and Peas


1 lb. fusilli pasta

2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

1 shallot, chopped

3 cloves garlic, chopped

8 oz. pancetta, cubed

1/2 cup dry white wine

1 cup frozen peas

1 cup heavy cream

1/4 cup parmesan

2 Tbsp. flat leaf Italian parsley, chopped

Directions: Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add shallot and saute until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add in garlic and cook about 30 seconds until fragrant. Add in the diced pancetta and cook until crispy, about 8 minutes. Pour in the wine and deglaze the pan, scraping all the brown bits off the bottom of the skillet. Add in frozen peas and stir. Add in heavy cream and let sauce simmer about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, generously salt the boiling water ands cook pasta according to the box until al dente. When cooked, transfer pasta into the sauce with a slotted spoon. A little pasta water is good for the sauce. Coat the pasta with sauce. Stir in parmesan. Pour pasta into serving bowl and top with parsley. Serve cracked black pepper and parmesan at the table.


Al dente pasta tossed with crispy pancetta and bright green peas. I could eat the whole bowl.
