  1. Cook pancetta or bacon in oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until just beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Add onion and salt and cook, stirring, until onion is softened, about 4 minutes. Add noodles and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Add peas and broth to skillet and bring mixture to a boil. Cook, stirring, until noodles are just tender, about 3 minutes.
  2. Remove skillet from heat and stir in butter, Parmesan, and pepper. (If mixture is a bit soupy, let it stand for 1 to 2 minutes to allow noodles to continue to absorb liquid.) Serve with additional Parmesan, if desired.

Reduced broth to 2 cups, made 2 packages of ramen, but would add 1 more if I were to make it again. Everyone loved the flavor, but quantity of noodles was lacking.

I used bacon, doubled the noodles and added a jar of mushrooms & 1/4 teaspoon of red pepper flakes. Plus I boiled the noodles about 10 minutes so it wasn't so soupy. Will definitely make again.

Regretfully we did not care for this recipe. We were super excited to try it based on the photo- we found it to be way too soupy even after following the recipe to a T. I even added extra Par...

4 stars because it needed tweaking. But it was still delicious. Pancetta would give this dish a better flavor, but I was out of pancetta. I used bacon instead, cooking it a little longer than...

This had really great flavor! I doubled the recipe but only used 2 c. of broth. I think next time I'll add another package of noodles. Thanks for the recipe!

Added an additional package of ramen and used bacon. Flavor was great - new quick and easy go to comfort food.

Bacon needs to be cooked separately and added at the end. Way too much broth called for - needs to be cut in half at least or add another package of ramen noodles. The flavor was pretty good t...
