Prosciutto, Pancetta, or turkey bacon (Prosciuttopictured) --- roughly 3 slices, diced or pulled into small pieces [you can cut or break into even smaller chunks once cooked]
1/4 of a chopped onion (white or yellow) --- roughly 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 bag of frozen peas, thawed* --- 12-14oz bag
Salt and Pepper
Heat a medium saucepan over medium high heat. Add a drizzle (1-2 Tablespoons) of olive oil. Add the Prosciuttoand cook until crispy. Remove from pan but leave the oil.
Add the onion and cook until soft and clear and just beginning to brown. Then add the garlic and cook for one more minute.
Add peas to the pan and cook until heated through (2-3 minutes). Add procuitto, stir, and remove from heat. Stir in salt and pepper to taste.
Plate and top with freshly grated Parmesan .
*To thaw the peas I put them in a pasta strainer and ran water over them --- then set the strainer in a large bowl of water to thaw as I chopped the ingredients. Water does not need to be hot at all --- just room temp.
