Pasta with green peas recipes

Pasta with green peas


A rich and tasty pasta with simple ingredients, it is prepared in a few minutes by cooking everything in the same pan , the important thing is to use a suitable pasta such as tubes or smooth thimbles (some also cook it with chopped spaghetti).

You can enrich it with bacon cubes and flavor it with mint leaves.

I used fresh peas but you can also make it with frozen peas.


  • 300 g tube-type pasta
  • 1 onion, small
  • 600 g fresh peas, shelled
  • to taste salted ricotta, or seasoned pecorino
  • to taste extra virgin olive oil
  • fresh mint to taste
  • salt and pepper


  1. Shell the fresh peas and wash them under running water.
  2. Prepare chopped onion and brown it in a high-sided pan with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
  3. Add the fresh peas (or frozen ones) and cover them with hot water (about 3 teacups) then leave to cook covered for about 3 minutes.
  4. Add the pasta to the same pan and mix, season with salt and pepper, cover with a lid and leave to cook over low heat until completely cooked, stirring gently from time to time with a wooden spoon.
  5. Once the pasta is cooked, add the fresh mint leaves and a nice grating of salted ricotta or pecorino, before serving.
