Spaghetti Salt Olive Oil Bacon Shallot Frozen Peas Garlic Black Pepper Red Pepper Parsley
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.
Add the garlic and parsley and cook for another 3 minutes. (Check to make sure that the peas are fully cooked).
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.
Add the grated cheese to the pasta. Start out with 3-4 tablespoons and add more if you desire. Taste test for salt and pepper.
