Pasta with peas with a sauce similar to "carbonara"
(I cooked 4 portions, so we will have the same for lunch and dinner.)

For the sauce I used 1 small thinly diced onion, instead of speck I used 4 slices of cooked ham, which I sautéed in a pan. Instead of cream, approx. 3 tablespoons milk, the rest is vegetable broth and cooking water from the pasta (it contains starch, so it makes the sauce quite creamy).

I did, however, add 1 egg yolk and the usual salt, pepper, a little nutmeg.
