  • Summary

    Adding peas to a carbonara is by no means classically Italian, though the combination of black pepper, pancetta, and peas is. I barely cook the peas—a quick blanching in the pasta cooking water right before you pull the pasta is all it takes. Instead of (or in addition to) the peas, you could use asparagus or thinly sliced sugar snap peas.

    Ingredients

    • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 3 ounces pancetta, cut into small dice
    • Extra-virgin olive oil
    • 8 ounces dried fettuccine, linguine, or spaghetti
    • 1 pound English peas in their pods, shelled (1 cup peas)
    • 3 scallions, trimmed (including 1/2 inch off the green tops), thinly sliced on an angle
    • 1 small handful pea tendrils (optional)
    • 1 egg, whipped well with a fork in a little bowl
    • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
    • 1/2 cup freshly grated Pecorino Romano cheese
