Ground Beef and Peas
by James Belardo

We’re always looking for quick and easy dishes, especially for people who don’t have a lot of time. Cucina Dello ZIo This recipe was born in the “Cucina della povertà” (poverty’s kitchen) as the ingredients are inexpensive and commonplace. It’s also fairly simple to make and  can be served over rice or pasta (toss in a few cherry tomatoes to add some sweetness if you like).

Ingredients
1-2 lbs. ground beef (or veal)
1/8 lb pancetta, cut into small cubes
1 cup fresh peas (or frozen) boiled and drained
1/2 onion, cut into small pieces
1-2 cloves garlic, diced
2-3 tbsp olive oil
oregano, fresh (preferred) or dried
fresh Flat-leaf parsley
Salt and Pepper to taste
Peperoncino Fiocchi (hot pepper flakes) – optional

Starch
Brown rice
Orecchiette
Egg noodles

Directions
1. While cooking your rice or pasta, heat 2-3 tbsp of olive oil in a medium sized skillet and fry the pancetta.
