This recipes is the inspiration for one of our favorite go to meals. And frozen peas have got a lot more protein and fiber than a jar of tomato sauce. However, I'm not amazed that folks were underwhelmed by this exact recipe, but most Real Simple recipes need more flavor. When you put the peas and the ricotta in the blender add some more flavor before you press those chop and grind buttons!! If you're craving bright flavors - add lemon and some mint. For something more subtle and sophisticated thyme is wonderful. For smokiness and a spicy kick think about some harissa. And never feel bad about adding more ricotta or olive oil or salt or pepper if that's the flavor your craving. And about the pasta. Farfale(botwies) are much better than tagiatelle. The ricotta and pea mixture is THICK, like thicker than some guacamoles, so having a pasta that you can scoop up the sauce with is great. Yum Yummy Yum Yum
This was ok, probably won't do it again. Teaemergence has a point on appearance
I am always looking for healthy, easy and fast recipes, which this one is; however, I would not make it again: the children did not eat past the first bite and us adults found it to be too bland and sweet-tasting - the extreme green coloring did not make it visually appealing either!
