4605  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Creamy Pasta with Fresh Peas on: March 26, 2012 01:59:56 PM
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!

I received two awesome packages today!  First up... my package from CraftyMamaBee.  One of my themes was really to receive something that my daughter collects, and I know nothing about... the Venture Brothers.  She's obsessed and I am clueless.  CraftyMamaBee sent these fantastic magnets, my daughter is going to flip over them!  She also sent a notebook that was popped right into my purse to replace the one I recently filled.  Thank you so much, CraftyMamaBee!


Now for my second fantastic package... I raise and collect sheep and bee themed items, bebedechocolate hit both of those themes with a needlebook (which I really needed) featuring an adorable sheep print.  I collect sheep related fabrics and don't have this one yet so score!  She also sent bee themed stickers.  Thank you so much bebedechocolate! 



This was a great swap, I'm looking forward to the next one.   Smiley

We've tried all kinds of commercial and home made deer spray and it never seems to work for us in our orchard.  Probably because we're not diligent enough to keep reapplying.  You can read that as lazy.   Cheesy  We tied paper bags over the baby fruit last year and finally got to taste an apple.  Our trees are young so there weren't that many to protect anyways.

Here's a possible solution for the deer, it worked miracles for us last season -

Could you take a large tub with water in a wheelbarrow or something, then dip a watering can to water your plants?
