WSVN — Delicious side dishes make every main course complete, and today we have one you’re going to love! That’s what’s cooking as we grab a Bite with Belkys.

The Chef: Belkys Nerey
The Dish: Bacon, Peas & Prosecco

4 oz. bacon, chopped
2 shallots
one 10.8 ounce bag of frozen peas, thawed
1/3 cup mint leaves
1/2 cup freshly grated Pecorino cheese
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 cup prosecco

Method of Preparation:
– Place the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook, stirring often until crispy and the fat has rendered, about five minutes. When it’s cooked, drain off all but two tablespoons of the bacon fat.

 – Add shallots to the pan and cook about two minutes. Stir in the peas and cook until heated through, about four minutes. When the peas are hot, raise the heat to medium-high and add the mint, Pecorino and salt. Toss gently and add the prosecco. Remove the pan from the heat and stir until everything is evenly combined and coated with the sauce.

To Plate:
Serve as a side dish to your favorite main courses!
