Ravioli with bacon, peas and courgette

This recipe is a real week night wonder. Simple, easy and really divine! I served mine with a chilled glass of white wine and some stone baked garlic bread.

Preparation - 5 mins
Cooking - 10 mins
Serves - 2 people


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 rashers of bacon, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
  • 1 medium courgette, grated
  • 1 cup of peas (you can use a mug, small glass depending on how many peas you like)
  • Tortellini (any flavour you like, one pack usually serves 2)


  1. Add the oil to a frying pan and fry the bacon until crisp, drain off the bacon and set aside leaving the oil in the pan. Soften the onion on a medium heat for 5-10 minuets then add the garlic for 3-5 minuets (don't let the garlic go a golden brown it will have burnt and will taste bitter). 
  2. Cook the pasta according to the packet instructions, while it is cooking add the courgette and the peas to the onions and add in the bacon.
  3. When the pasta is cooked drain it then and add it to the bacon mixture, then season with salt and pepper.
  4. Serve and cover in parmesan, lovely with garlic bread.
