Green peas with speck and chilli

I had some spare speck left so I thought why not to prepare something nice for dinner? And then I came up with this nice idea! Easy peasy!

What you need:

  • 100 g speck
  • 250 g peas (I used the frozen ones. The fresh one are the best option)
  • 1 tbs of tomato puree
  • half finely chopped red onion
  • extra virgin oil
  • chilli flakes

How to make it:

Pre heat a fry pan on a medium heat for 3 minutes. Finely chop the speck and cook it for 2 minutes in the pan. To prevent the speck from sticking add 1 tbs of warm water. When the speck is tender enough and the fat starts melting, add the peas with half cup of hot water.

Cook for 5 minutes. You can now add the chopped onion and the tomato purée.

Keep stirring on a medium heat and after 5 minutes add the extra virgin olive oil and the chilli flakes. Serve warm, it’s perfect with chicken or eggs!

Euro Cup 2012

Even if Italy lost against Spain in the final, we still did a great job! Thanks to the Azzuri for all emotions in this tournament! And remember it’s always time for a good Italian pizza!
