Ingredients

  • frozen peas 125g
  • frozen broad beans 50g
  • olive oil 1 tbsp
  • leek 1 small, finely sliced
  • dried chilli flakes 1 tsp
  • ricotta 75g
  • parmesan (or veggie alternative) 20g, grated, plus a little extra to serve
  • lemon 1/2, zested and juiced
  • linguine 150g
  • mint a small bunch, shredded

Method

  • Step 1

    Put the peas and broad beans into a bowl and pour over a kettle of boiling water. Leave for 1 minute, drain, and pod the broad beans. Take about ¾ of the peas and blend in a food processor or with a hand blender with 1 tbsp of water until smooth.

  • Step 2

    Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and fry the leek with some seasoning for 8-10 minutes until soft. Stir in the chilli flakes, broad beans and remaining peas, and fry for 2 minutes. Cool slightly and put into a bowl with the pea purée, ricotta, parmesan, lemon zest and juice and some seasoning, and mix well.

  • Step 3

    Cook the linguine following pack instructions, reserving some cooking water.

  • Step 4

    Tip the pasta back into the pan and add the pea and leek mix, and a splash of the cooking water. Mix well and serve with the mint and more parmesan, if you like.
