How to make it
- Melt 1 TBSP butter in pan, add pancetta and saute till pancetta is halfway to crispy.
- Add the thinly sliced mushrooms and 1 TBSP butter to the pan and saute for about 5 minutes on medium high.
- Add peas, cover and lower the heat to low.
- Cook pasta.
- While pasta is cooking, add the cream and garlic to the mushroom mixture and simmer slowly stirring while the scent of the garlic wafts gently into the air and the sauce begins to thicken.
- With teaspoon pick out some peas, go ahead, it's okay - taste them and see if they are nice and hot - if they are check the noodles.
- Add the shredded cheese to the mushroom mixture.
- If noodles are ready, drain them well, and add to the mushroom pan.
- Salt and pepper and you can plate it and eat!
