Side dish recipe :
A- Cut the diced bacon in very small pieces (as small as you can). Fry it in a non-stick pan until it gets golden brown (reckon 5 minutes) ; add the sage for the last 2 minutes. Reserve.
B- In salted boiling water, cook the rice with the pees.
C- Strain the rice and add the olive oil, bacon and sage (without the cooking grease) and parmesan cheese to it ; mix.

Of course you don't have to cook a "special" rice. A simple rice will be fine...
