Preparation

In large pot of boiling salted water, cook linguine for 7 minutes. Add snow peas; cook until pasta is tender but firm and snow peas are tender-crisp, about 2 minutes. Reserving 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the cooking liquid, drain and return to pot.

Meanwhile, in large nonstick skillet, fry pancetta over medium-high heat until starting to crisp, about 3 minutes. Drain off fat. Add oil, onion, garlic, salt, and hot pepper flakes (if using); fry until onion is softened, about 5 minutes.

Add parsley, oregano, pasta mixture and reserved cooking liquid; toss to coat. Sprinkle with cheese.
