Notes: This pasta dish comes from Wildwood Restaurant & Bar in Portland. As a variation, use fromage blanc instead of chèvre (goat) cheese. For a creamier dish, stir in more hot broth.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook pasta in 3 quarts boiling water until just tender to bite, about 8 minutes.

Step 2

Meanwhile, in a 10- to 12-inch frying pan over medium heat, stir garlic in oil until limp, about 2 minutes. Add cheese, broth, and peas and stir until simmering, 4 to 5 minutes.

Step 3

Drain pasta; return to pan. Add cheese mixture to pasta and mix well. Add mint and mix again. Add to taste salt, pepper, and juice from lemon wedges.

Sooooo fast and easy. Very tasty for the amount of work it takes. The cheese mixture was super soupy when I poured it over the pasta and I was worried I'd made pasta soup. But with 5 minutes and a little stirring, it had thickened to creamy. Served with apple, blackberry, macadamia, and spinach/kale salad with lemon and olive oil dressing.
