Tonight's meal also came from the March 2008 issue of Everyday Food. I'm still in awe over how easy this one was to make. Fresh Angel-Hair Pasta with Bacon and Peas has just 6 ingredients (one of which is salt and pepper, which I don't consider an ingredient) yet it made a fantastic, satisfying, simple meal.
The recipe says this is their take on spaghetti carbonara, but being the carbonara aficionado that I am, I don't see how this is anything like that dish. That doesn't mean it wasn't fantastic, though. I love meals I can make with ingredients I always have on hand (pasta, bacon, frozen peas, half-and-half) that takes less than 30 minutes to put together, including prep time. I subbed one pound of dry spaghetti for the fresh angel hair, but that's the only change I made.
