Pasta Carbonara with Peas

Very nice recipe. Good combination with the peas for taste and appealing presentation. Sometimes, I saute' some onions along with the pancetta. The result is very good and worth trying for a change.
Thanks for the good idea.

Olive Oil Cake

The word "polenta" refers to and means only the final product of cooking cornmeal with salt and water, that is "polenta". If what is to be used in this recipe is "cornmeal," as it seems that it should be, then it should specify cornmeal, or to be more specific "cornmeal for polenta." There are some Italian cakes that actually use cooked polenta in the mixture so this recipe could be very confusing for someone trying it for the first time.
