Ingredients

16 to 18
ounces
fresh or frozen cheese ravioli
6
slices bacon
2
cloves garlic, sliced
1
10-ounce package frozen peas, thawed
kosher salt and black pepper
1/4

grated ricotta salata

Directions

  1. Cook the ravioli according to the package directions. Reserve ¼ cup of the pasta water, drain the ravioli, and return them to the pot.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel–lined plate. Let cool, then break into pieces.
  3. Add the garlic to the skillet and cook, stirring frequently, until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Add the peas and cook until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. Gently mix the ravioli with the peas, reserved pasta water, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Sprinkle with the bacon and ricotta salata.
