Linguine with Spring Onion, Peas, Bacon and Egg

Here’s an easy spring pasta recipe idea – linguine with bacon, peas, and egg, with parsley and lemon zest on top. It comes together in 20 minutes!

spring pasta with peas

This spring pasta with peas has sweetness from the peas and caramelized onion, saltiness from the bacon, umami from the egg and the parmesan, and freshness from the parsley and lemon. The silky egg yolk really does bring it all together, in my opinion, and it’s fun to break the yolk.
