 A one-dish pasta meal is the perfect option for those busy weeknights. This simple and hearty Farfalle with Ricotta, Mint and Peas is ready to serve in just 22 minutes.

  • Yield: Serves: 4


  • 1 cup whole-milk or part-skim ricotta
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 pound farfalle (or other short pasta)
  • 2 cups frozen peas
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint


1. In a medium bowl, combine ricotta, butter and Parmesan and mix well.

2. Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Cook farfalle until just al dente, about 10 minutes or as package label directs. Add peas to pot 1 minute before the end of cooking time to heat through. Reserve 1 cup of cooking water and thoroughly drain pasta and peas.
