Pea, Bacon and Feta Pasta

Pasta can be boring, but that’s not the case with our Pea, Bacon and Feta Pasta. With a dash of chilli – it’s full of savoury flavours that’ll make you want to go back for more.

Serves: Two

Time: 15 minutes


  • 190g orecchiette pasta
  • 3/4 cup frozen peas
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 80g shortcut bacon rashers, trimmed and chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 long red chilli, thinly sliced
  • 40g marinated feta, plus 1 tablespoon marinating oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves



Cook the pasta following the packet directions. Add the peas two minutes before the pasta is cooked. Drain the pasta/peas and set aside.

In a large, deep frying pan, heat the olive oil and then add the bacon and garlic and cook until golden – about four minutes. Add the chilli and cook for a further minute. Add the pasta, crumbled feta, marinating oil and mint to the pan. Toss to combine and serve.
