Ingredients

    9 oz. linguine
    1 cup frozen peas
    3 slices bacon
    1 cup chopped onion
    3 cloves garlic
    1/2 teaspoon thyme
    1/2 cup fat-free half and half
    1/2 cup shredded parmesan

Directions

Cook pasta in boiling water - do not add salt to water. When pasta is almost al dente, add peas to pasta and water. Drain, but reserve 3/4 cup of pasta water for later.

While pasta is cooking, cook bacon in large pan until crispy. Remove bacon and all drippings, except for 2 tsp. (or less) of drippings to saute onions. Saute onions for 3 minutes and then add garlic and thyme to pan for an additional minute. Stir in drained pasta and peas, reserved cooking liquid, and half and half. Cook for 2 minutes or until sauce thickens. Crumble bacon on top and toss with Parmesan. Add salt and pepper to taste.
