Pea Pasta is a simple recipe that comes together in minutes, but tastes seriously you ordered it from a great restaurant. All the flavors are well combined and the creamy sauce is always a winner for any pasta. A great comfort dish that the whole family will love in no time.
Bacon and peas are a great combination. The texture from peas gives a great pop to any dishes and the mild, slightly creamy flavors are really good together.
Peas really lets any dish bloom and it is an easy way to add something fresh. Combine with bacon bites for an amazing savory flavor and I tell you it doesn’t need any more to make a easy weeknight meal.
Reasons to make Pea Pasta

A dish for picky eaters. If you have someone that won’t eat most things, I can vouch this is the pasta recipe that will go on repeat mill high.

What you need for this Pea Pasta recipe
Any pasta that you like: fettuccini, spaghetti, bowtie, penne – everything is great on here.
Peas are great for texture, color and make this pasta an eye catcher. I use frozen peas, but you can go for fresh peas. Know that you need extra time to soak them up and cooking.
Dairy free cream cheese and oat milk make a great creamy sauce, rich and so good. These are ingredients that I use often to make sauces like in my Creamy Mac and Cheese.
Bacon bites are naturally vegan. Otherwise you will find real bacon bites on the package.
Garlic and shallots: both of them add great flavor and the shallots are here for an aromatic and milder flavor. Like you would exepct in a fine dinning experience.
Olive oil adds great savory flavor and I cook my bacon bites, shallots and garlic in it, yummy.
Vegan parmesan is always great for a wonderful cheesy flavor.
