I just made Bon Appetit's cover recipe, Fettuccine with Peas, Asparagus, and Pancetta and absolutely loved it! Despite the cream and bacon, the dish is surprisingly light and can serve as the perfect first course or side dish (how it's done in Italy). Other redeeming qualities? It's delicious served hot or cold which is perfect for Summer.
I substituted grated lemon for lemon peel, bacon for pancetta, and only used half the cream and increased the pasta water instead. I served it as a side to chicken cutlets and a raddichio salad with balsamic glaze and ricotta. It was a crowd pleaser.
Here's how it looked in my adorable pasta bowl from Williams-Sonoma:
