Speedy Penne Pasta

with Mint, Pancetta, and Peas

The simplest way to create a meal that’s fast and easy but still tasty is by focusing on a few thoughtfully paired powerhouse ingredients. In this case, that’s pancetta, which brings tons of porky flavor even when used lightly; mint, for a fresh herbiness; and peas, which add a touch of sweet green. When tossed into this quick, creamy pasta, they immediately create contrasts and flavor combos that feel new with each bite.

Large Pot
Large Pan



Wash and dry all produce. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Mince or grate garlic. Pick mint leaves from stems; discard stems. Roughly chop leaves.

Toast Pine Nuts

Heat a large, empty pan over medium-low heat. Add pine nuts and toast, tossing frequently, until lightly browned and fragrant, 2-3 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.

Boil Pasta

Once water is boiling, add penne to pot. Cook, stirring occasionally, until al dente, 9-11 minutes. Carefully scoop out and reserve ⅔ cup pasta cooking water, then drain.

Cook Pancetta

Heat a large drizzle of olive oil in same pan over medium heat. Add pancetta and cook, tossing, until lightly crisped, 2-3 minutes. Add garlic and peas and toss until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Make Sauce

Stir penne, sour cream, half the Parmesan, stock concentrates, and reserved pasta cooking water into pan. Gently toss over medium heat until a thick, creamy sauce forms, 3-4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Plate and Serve

Divide penne mixture between plates. Sprinkle with mint (to taste), pine nuts, and remaining Parmesan.
