Fresh Peas, Pasta and Feta

We are well on our way to July now, and the peas are ready to harvest. This is a really easy recipe using fresh peas, and garden mint, all you need to add is pasta, lemon juice and pepper.

Ingredients;


350g penne pasta (I used spaghetti as this was all I had in the house)
150g fresh peas
100g fresh broad beans if you have them
2tbsp olive oil
zest and juice of 1 lemon
150g baby spinach if you have any ready to harvest – or you can add a sprinkle of fresh mint
200g feta cheese, crumbled

What you need to do:

  1. Cook the penne in a large pan of boiling water for 5 mins. Add the peas and broad beans and cook for a further 5 mins until the penne is just tender. Drain and return to the pan.
  2. Add the olive oil, lemon zest and juice and spinach leaves. Toss together until the spinach starts to wilt.
  3. Add the feta and stir well.
  4. Season with freshly ground pepper (there’s no need to add salt as the feta is salty).

This is a really light summery dish, that will make the most of peas, broadbeans, fresh herbs and greens.
