Servings 8 people


  • 1 lb linguini
  • 1 package bacon
  • 1 onion yellow
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese
  • 15 oz peas canned of frozen


  • Pan fry the bacon in sections being sure not to overcrowd the pan. Remove the bacon and give it a rough chop. Save for later.
  • Remove 3/4 of the bacon grease and reserve it for later. In the remaining bacon grease sauté onions with a pinch of salt. Cook for 5-7 minutes until onions have sweated out and are translucent.
  • Add back the bacon and peas and give it a gentle toss.
  • Add pasta, parmesan cheese, and some of the bacon grease back in. The amount is up to you I typically add 1 tbsp back in to loosen the pasta and bring the dish together.
