Snap Peas and Garlic Scapes with Pancetta and Onion

Pancetta is un-smoked Italian bacon; if you can’t find it you can use thick cut bacon instead.

-Heat 1 TBS butter in a large skillet.

-Chop up 4-5 garlic scapes into 2 inch pieces, discarding the top 2 inches of the flower head.

-Sauté for 5 minutes.

-Add 2 ounces thin sliced minced pancetta.

-Cook until golden, about 3 minutes more.

-Take the tops and strings off of .5 pounds of snap peas.  

Add to the pancetta and cook for about 3 min. until barely tender.

-Season with sea salt and pepper to taste and sprinkle with a TBS of chopped chives or green onions.
