  • 3 1/2 cups shelled green peas
  • 1 2/3 cup Arborio rice

In a deep saute pan, melt the butter. Add the bacon and onions. Saute the mixture until the bacon is crispy, about 2 minutes. Add the peas and rice. Saute for 1 minute. Using a wooden spoon, stir in 1 cup of the stock at a time, until all the stock is incorporated, about 35 minutes. Stir in the cream and grated cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
