Farfalle with ricotta and peas.

Long time ago I made a list of all of my favorite recipe that I enjoy preparing, and of course eating. As I was organizing my recipes I ran across this very long list and I was surprise of the amount of dishes that I have stopped making, or completely forgot about it. Last night recipe was on the top of that list.
After preparing it and enjoying it I remember why it was on the top. The peas been a bit sweet marry well with the pungent of the Parmigiano Reggiano. The ricotta with the egg forms this soft cream that gently bind on to the pasta.

We love farfalle, but any tubular pasta will be just fine. I have made a huge bowl so I can enjoy some today for lunch.

We definitely will prepare it again, and again….

Bon Appetit!!

    I love the simplicity of the dish Giangi and yet I know it’s full-packed with flavor. I need to try this one of these days. 🙂
