 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.

How to Make It

Step 1

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

Step 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.

Step 3

Return pasta and peas to pot and add ricotta mixture. Toss gently, adding cooking water 1 Tbsp. at a time as necessary to moisten and coat pasta. Season with salt and pepper, stir in mint and serve.

I used whole grain pasta and light ricotta. It wasn't anything special.
