Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat and sauté the onions, pancetta or bacon, parsley, thyme and red pepper flakes until the onions are sweet and tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Deglaze with wine then stir in the tomato paste. Add the roasted garlic, Chicken Stock, cream, salt and pepper and mix well. Bring the sauce to a boil and simmer until sauce consistency, about 15 to 20 minutes. Place the sauce in a blender, process to a smooth cream and return to the sauce pan. Add the green peas and cook on medium-low heat 8 to 10 more minutes or until peas are cooked through.
