Tagliatelle w/ Fresh Peas & Mint

peas pasta7


Here is a lazy girl's 8 minute weeknight dinner for you.

Start the clock:

I buy this great fresh pasta that comes from Italy, it stays in the fridge for a while & takes all of a minute or two to cook.
I have some pesto made from the basil in my garden.
I bought fresh sweet peas at the farmers' market on the weekend.



What else can I put in the pan?

How about a half an onion, chopped and sauteed? Maybe some butter. Yeah.



Some white wine and chopped fresh sweet mint to finish it off & a sprinkle of grated Parmigiano Reggiano.

This took all of 8 minutes to put together. The hardest part was shelling the peas, and the best part was eating it.

Just goes to show you it's sometimes quicker and a whole lot tastier to put together a good meal than it is to get take-out.

See, you can eat well on weeknight! I am a true believer that every meal should be this good, and most shouldn't require hours to prepare.

Julia said...

I agree with T.W. Great food can be simple and easy to prepare...

Fresh peas are one of my favorite things in the world. You used them perfectly here - barely cooked to show off their perfect flavor and texture. Yum!

Now, I have to see if the market has peas when I go this weekend! Looks delicious (and I love how quickly it goes together!).

Karen said...
