  • Summary

    Bacon adds a kick of smoky, sweet flavor — something tart Greek yogurt is missing. It rounds everything out. We also add sugar snap peas but broccoli, English peas, corn or a big bag of mixed veggies work too.

    Ingredients

    • 1 pound pasta such as bow tie, penne or spiral
    • One (16-ounce) package frozen sugar snap peas
    • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 4 slices thick-cut bacon
    • 1 cup plain unsweetened Greek yogurt
    • 3 ounces Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, grated (about 3/4 cup), plus more for serving
    • Salt and fresh ground black pepper
    • Juice of one lemon
    • Fresh chives, chopped
