  • 1 onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1 packet pancetta lardons (about 75g)

How to Make Pea and Pancetta Pasta Risotto

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 6 steps you must follow to make Pea and Pancetta Pasta Risotto in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • I usually use a cast iron frying pan for this but it works fine in a heavy-based pan too. Heat a splash of olive oil and saute the chopped onion and pancetta until soft and slightly browning.
  • Step 2
  • Add the dried herbs, garlic, white and black pepper and stir to release the aromas.
  • Step 3
  • Add a splash of dry vermouth, or dry white wine (although you don't have to, I don't think Nigella does), and stir so any sticky bits at the bottom of the pan are released.
  • Step 4
  • Add the orzo pasta and stir to coat in the oil, then add 2 and a half cups (the same cup you measured the pasta in) of cold water, and a splash of chicken stock. You can also use vegetable stock, or just water.
  • Step 5
  • Let the risotto bubble gently, stir from time to time to prevent it sticking on the bottom. When the stock/water is nearly all absorbed, add the peas, and a little more water if needed, until the pasta is tender, about 8 to 10 minutes in total.
  • Step 6
  • Grate some Parmesan cheese - up to you how much, I used a couple of handfuls, stir through the pasta together with a squeeze of lemon juice and a knob of butter if you wish (I forgot). Check the seasoning and serve with a green salad. So speedy!
