Go-to recipes - Carbonara!

I discovered this last year and it quickly became a stand by. It is quick, made from pantry (and freezer) staples, and includes bacon and cheese!

Pasta Carbonara
4 slices bacon, chopped
1 c grated Parmesan cheese
2 c frozen English peas
2 eggs beaten
1/2 pound pasta (I use whole wheat linguini)
Red pepper flakes to taste

Prepare pasta according to directions. Meanwhile saute bacon. Once  bacon begins to crisp add peas and heat through.

Gradually add 1/3 c pasta water to eggs to temper. Drain pasta and stir through eggs, peas, bacon and cheese. Add red pepper flakes to taste.
