This simple pasta is fresh and serves as the perfect dish for a Spring lunch! Peas contain high concentrations of dietary fiber, protein, vitamins A, C, E and K. They are great for digestion and are rich in phytonutrients!

Ingredients

  • 500 grams large shell pasta (or pasta of choice. Bowtie pasta also works well!)
  • 1 1/4 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 500 grams package frozen baby peas (do not thaw)
  • 2 1/2 cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese plus additional for serving
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley

Method

Cook your pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water with some olive oil to prevent sticking, cook until just tender but still firm to bite. Do not overcook. Drain the cooked pasta and keep 1/2 cup of the pasta water. Return the pasta to the pot.

In the meantime, bring your cream to a simmer in a large pan over a medium-high heat. Add peas and simmer just until heated through, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add 2 cups of Parmesan cheese (keeping the rest for serving) and stir until melted and the sauce thickens slightly, this should take roughly 1 minute. Stir in the mint and half of your parsley. Pour sauce over pasta and toss to coat, adding pasta cooking liquid by tablespoonfuls if dry. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer to bowls. Sprinkle with the remaining parsley.

About Gemma Oberholzer

I guess you can say I'm a serial self-improver. Since I was a kid I can remember being weirdly thrilled at the idea of learning something new and figuring out how to use that new found knowledge to better myself. This perpetual learn-grow itch eventually lead me to the field of Health and Wellness and it's here I've been, fascinated for the last 8 years of my study and work life. From Human Life Scientist and learning the mechanics of physiology and intricacies of metabolic biochemistry, to Food and Nutrition Scientist where I deepened my understanding of diet and it's key role in human performance and health. Geared with this comprehensive education and better appreciation for human health, I've since been able to practically apply this in my career through the fields of research, product development, brand management and marketing. In 2018, I was finally able to bring all these learnings together and so my passion project, WellBe&Co, was born. WellBe&Co is a personal and corporate wellness company specializing in easy-to-implement, lifestyle-focused nutrition, training and health solutions. It's here that I've gained invaluable insights into the human-side of the health and wellness industry in a way that has enabled me to provide relevant content and value-adding services to individuals and companies alike and live out our mission to build communities that know better and grow together through better health.
