Pasta with Peas, Bacon and Crispy Onions

I was hesitant before to give you more “everyday” recipes. But finally, many of you ask me for ideas. So in the future I will offer you what comes to my mind in addition to the traditional   recipes from around the world that I taste during my travels, as I have done so often to today. Today I’m giving you a pasta dish that’s just “al dente” with a creamy and tasty sauce with peas, crispy bacon and crunchy onion! 

Fusilli recipe for 4 people:

Onion crispy 
-1 onion
-2 tablespoons of olive oil

-300g of fusilli
-2 or 3 cloves of garlic
-1 tablespoon of olive oil
-150g of peas (you can put more or less!)
-3 tablespoons of mascarpone
-8 slices of bacon
-salt, ground pepper

Chop onion finely.

Place two tablespoons of olive oil in a small skillet over moderate heat. Add the onion.

Let cook while stirring regularly. Salt.

The onion will become colored and lose its water as it goes along. 

It must be colored without burning.

Then let it cool on a paper towel. It looks like it’s a little burned here, but it’s not. The flash must reinforce this impression, but to the taste it is absolutely delicious! 

Note from Bernard:
By the way, you can put it on hummus (recipe HERE) or on babaganoush (recipe THERE). 

Cook the bacon  at pan in a base of oil to make it perfectly crispy. 

For the pasta: put the olive oil  in a pan with the whole garlic cloves. You can crush them, but I like them whole too! 

Add the peas. I bought frozen peas. By the way, Picard makes very good ones, the “garden peas”, bigger and sweeter. These are the ones I used for the recipe!
Stir from time to time.

During this time, cook the fusilli pasta, deducting 1 minute of cooking time from the desired result. I like them “al dente”, so I took a minute off the “al dente” time of the package… 

Once cooked, drain them and put them under cold water. 

When the peas have thawed and cooked for 5-7 minutes, add the mascarpone. 

Mix well, add salt and pepper generously. 

Add half the bacon cut into pieces. 

Add the pasta. 

Then let the whole thing warm up on low heat, stirring well to distribute the cream. Since the pasta is one minute undercooked, it has some leeway before overcooking, so it will be perfect once heated by the very hot cream.

Serve the pasta, then add the crispy onions and the remaining bacon .
