Smashed Pea Spaghetti

Vibrant green and fresh tasting even on a night where it was snowing outside….frozen peas are one item I always have bags of to use in recipes!

Smashed Pea Spaghetti

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb spaghetti
  • 16 ounce package frozen green peas, thawed (used no-salt added)
  • ¾ cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • Salt to taste

Directions:

Bring a large pot of water to a boil, add spaghetti and cook for time on package. Reserve 1/3 cup of the pasta water, drain the pasta.

In a food processor or work bowl of a high power blender (I used my Ninja 1100) chop the peas up. Add in the ricotta cheese, oil and pepper, process until mostly smooth. Transfer the sauce to a large mixing bowl, stir in the reserved pasta water. Season to taste with salt. Toss with the hot pasta.

Serves 4 to 6.
