We harvested our first peas this weekend, so a spring pasta dish made it onto our dinner menu.  



I melted 2 tbsp. of butter then sauteed 4 minced garlic cloves and a thinly sliced leek for approx. 5 minutes.


Then I sliced a few mushrooms and added them to the pan for a few more minutes, along with salt and pepper to taste.  Then I turned the heat off and got busy with the rest of the ingredients.


Here they are: pappardelle pasta, 2 lemons, fresh peas, low fat ricotta cheese and parmesian cheese.  The first thing I did was zest the two lemons into the pan of vegetables.  No lemon juice was used in this recipe, I saved the zest-less lemons in the fridge for another day.


I cooked the peas in boiling water for 2 minutes then scooped them out with a slotted spoon and moved them to the pan of veggies.  The pasta nests went right into the boiling water and cooked for 4 minutes.


I moved the cooked pasta to the pan of veggies and turned the heat on medium.  


I alternated adding large spoonfuls of ricotta cheese with small ladels of the pasta water.  I didn't measure, but think I used about 1/2 cup of the pasta water and 3/4 cup of the ricotta.  I then mixed in 1/4 cup of the parm cheese.  I only cooked this for about 2 more minutes while stirring to incorporate everything together.


It turned out really nice!

What a perfect meal to welcome in spring-time!

Your last picture brings back great childhood memories of picking spring/summer peas right off the vine. So yummy!
