Ravioli With Peas and Crispy Bacon Recipe

I tried this recipe the other day and I have to say it's pretty good, if you like the ingredients for it. I was craving peas (due to veggie of choice to feed my son that night) and I found this from RealSimple.com.

Ravioli With Peas and Crispy Bacon

Serves 4 - Hands-On Time: 25m - Total Time: 25m


16 to 18 ounces fresh or frozen cheese ravioli
6 slices bacon
2 cloves garlic, sliced
1 10-ounce package frozen peas, thawed
kosher salt and black pepper
1/4 cup grated ricotta salata


1.Cook the ravioli according to the package directions. Reserve ¼ cup of the pasta water, drain the ravioli, and return them to the pot.

2.Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel–lined plate. Let cool, then break into pieces.

3.Add the garlic to the skillet and cook, stirring frequently, until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes.

4.Add the peas and cook until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes.

5.Gently mix the ravioli with the peas, reserved pasta water, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Sprinkle with the bacon and ricotta salata.
