Replaced the Green Bean Casserole for Thanksgiving. Easy and delicious! A new family favorite! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Beginners Beware! The recipe is good, but pancetta is extremely salty! Remember - less is more. You can always add more to your recipe if you feel you need more taste, but I wouldn't add this much in right away to this recipe. Add a little at a time until you are satisfied with the outcome. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Really tasty. Very quick and easy to prepare. Use half the amount of pancetta, seems this probably is a misprint, can't imagine using half a lb of pancetta. I also used half of the rendering prior to putting the peas, shallots and chili flakes in the pot. I prepared the pancetta first and set it aside while I cooked everything else, since the peas only takes a few minutes to heat up and get her on the plate. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for Christmas dinner and it was really good and quite easy to make. Lots of flavor. A great recipe to enhance peas. item not reviewed by moderator and published
0.5 lbs is too much pancetta as I found it was too salty. I would use 1/3 at most probably 1/4 of what the recipe calls for. I liked the concept but maybe my palate isn't sophisticated enough for pancetta (I think my next go round would be to use peas with thick cut bacon instead. I liked the thinly sliced shallots and hot peppers but on my next iteration, I will try chopping the shallot just to try it out. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This was delicious! I made it last night and it was a hit in our house - even our boys ( 4 and 6 years old loved it! I felt it was a little too salty with the amount of pancetta the recipe calls for so I will make with 1/2 that much next time.
