Lemon, pea and ricotta pasta

IMG_0377

Some meals, are sufficiently perfect in their simplicity. Nothing fancy, just good ingredients that work together just beautifully.

Like this lemon, pea and ricotta pasta.

No complex sauce, no slow cooking required.

Just a pile of al dente spaghetti, tossed with peas, mint, lemon and a good amount of ricotta.

A beautiful Spring dish indeed.

What about you? Tried any tasty pasta combinations lately?

  1. Please excuse the gush that's about to follow but I just have to let you know how much I appreciate that the meals you post are easy, ordinary, everyday meals that I can either incorporate into my menu planning or that inspire me to think about variations that can be incorporated. As much as I love drooling over the many food blogs that I read it is really nice to be inspired by manageable recipes as well.

    Hhhmm, gush over. :)

    Pasta has been off the menu at our place for a while but we have discovered that soba noodles make a delicious alternative with the right toppings.
