16 oz Bellwether Farms Creme Fraiche
1 lb Small shell pasta or other small dried pasta
1 cup Frozen peas 5 slices Bacon, sliced into pieces
1 Shallots, thinly sliced Parmesan cheese Black pepper


Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain, then set aside, reserving ½ cup of pasta water for the sauce.

Head a large pan over medium heat. Cook the bacon until crisp. Remove the bacon from the pan and set on paper towels to absorb excess grease. Pour out the remaining grease, leaving 2 tablespoons in the pan.

Add the shallots to the pan along with the frozen peas. Sautee the shallots until translucent and peas are warmed. To the pan, add the crumbled bacon, Bellwether Farms Creme Fraiche, cooked pasta, and peas. Toss to mix.

If mixture becomes too thick, add the reserved pasta water splash by splash until you reach the desired consistency.

Plate and top with grated parmesan cheese and more black pepper.
