Ingredients

1 slice bacon, chopped   20 g
  paper towels, to absorb the bacon fat    
1/3 cup frozen peas   40 g
170 g fettuccine (fresh)    
4 tsp cream 15%   20 mL
30 g ham, chopped    
  ground pepper to taste    
1 pinch nutmeg    
60 g feta cheese, light, crumbled    
1 tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated   3 g
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g

Before you start

Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Put a colander in the sink to drain the cooked pasta so that it will be ready when needed.

Method

  1. Chop the bacon, add it to a nonstick pan, then fry until the bacon is crisp. Set aside on a paper towel to absorb the excess fat.
  2. Cook the small peas, still frozen, by blanching them about 3 min in a small pot of boiling salted water. Drain them and set aside.
  3. To save time, the rest of the sauce preparation and the pasta cooking can be done at the same time : Cook the fresh pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water, exactly as you would do for dried pasta. The cooking time is written on the package: the pasta is ready when just tender but still firm to the bite (al dente).
  4. While the pasta is cooking, heat the cream in a pan over very low heat. Chop the ham, then add it to the pan. Add the bacon, peas, ground pepper, and nutmeg. Coarsely crumble the feta cheese then combine it with the other ingredients. Pour the drained pasta into the pan. Mix well, sprinkle with the grated parmesan, then serve in the warmed dishes.
