See I told you we were the pasta family. This recipe is for when I’ve no time to cook (i.e. got home late with nothing ready to heat up in the fridge). It’s really easy and Lexie loves it.
Pasta with peas and parmesan
Prep time: 2 mins
Cooking time: 8 – 12 mins depending on pasta
- Frozen peas
- Olive oil
- Squeeze of lemon (optional)
- Fresh basil or parsley (optional)
Cook your pasta as normal and 2 minutes before it’s done add the frozen peas. Drain, put back in pan and drizzle with olive oil and a squeeze of lemon. Serve with lots of parmesan and chopped fresh basil or parsley if you have any. If I’m eating this with Lexie I add salt to mine!!
A nice variation is to add chopped courgettes to the pasta at the start of cooking. If you do this version add a bit more squeezed lemon at the end – courgettes looove lemon.
