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.

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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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