Enter the Weight Watchers Pasta with Peas and Pancetta. It is perfect as a slimming lunch or dinner for those wanting to count their calories or adhere to an eating plan like Weight Watchers.
Line a large plate with paper towels. Add both the salt and a slight amount of olive oil to a pot of water big enough to hold the spaghetti.
Slowly add the shallots, peas, salt, pepper, and 1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper. Increase the stovetop heat to a medium-high, cooking for about 5 minutes. Toss often.
Return the bacon pieces to the skillet. Add the cooked pasta and 3/4 cup of the pasta water. Add in the rest of the crushed red pepper, lemon zest and juice and toss to combine.
