Lemon Alfredo Pappardelle

If you need an at home date night meal, look no further! This dish checks all of the boxes. It’s easy and doesn’t call for a ton of ingredients. However, it feels fancy and special. The lemon Alfredo is absolutely delicious. Smother it on some perfectly cooked pappardelle with crispy cubes of pancetta and peas then you have yourself an amazing meal. Best served with a side salad and some wine.

All you need for this pasta recipe is pappardelle. I get mine at Trader Joe’s. Then you will need some heavy cream, butter, lemon, grated parmesan, garlic, peas, and cubed pancetta. Fresh Italian parsley is also a great addition to this meal. I used fresh English peas for this recipe. However, frozen peas will work just fine! Just make sure to defrost them.
