Gather all your ingredients and get ready for a savory adventure.
In your straight-sided skillet, cook the pancetta in a tablespoon of oil over medium heat for about five minutes or until golden and crisp. Remove the pancetta, leaving only 2 tablespoons of fat in the pan and discarding the rest.
Using that fat, heat the sliced onions for two minutes on medium-high heat. Introduce the garlic for only 30 seconds before adding Barefoot Sauvignon Blanc and cook for one minute (you might as well pour yourself a glass as well!). Add the broth, pepper flakes, 1/2 teaspooon of salt and some grinds of pepper, then bring it all to a boil.
Lower the heat to a simmer, stir in the pasta, cover and let the ingredients mix together for 9 minutes. Uncover, add the peas and cook until the liquid turns into a sauce (about 3-5 minutes). The pasta should be al dente (cooked but firm) and the peas should have a crunch to them.
Finally, remove from heat, add the pancetta, half cup of cheese, lemon zest and juice, a tablespoon of oil and the mint. Stir together and add salt and pepper as needed.
Buon Appetito! Add whatever garnishes you like (lemon slices, a couple extra sprigs of mint, a sprinkling of Parmesan) and let your taste buds transport you to Italia!
