Preparation steps

1.
Heat the oil in a large shallow pan and cook the onion and pancetta until tender and lightly golden- about 10 minutes.
2.
Stir in the rice and cook, stirring, until the grains are coated with oil. Gradually add the stock, a ladleful at a time, stirring until absorbed, before adding more stock. Continue cooking until the rice is tender, but still has a little bite.
3.
Stir in the peas and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 1-2 minutes until the peas are tender.
4.
Remove from the heat, cover, and stand for 2 minutes, then stir in the butter. Serve immediately garnished with cheese shavings and a sprinkling of freshly ground pepper.
