Sweet Peas and Shells Alfredo

No photos this time…I was so hungry I forgot. By the time we were done it was all gone. So obviously this one was tasty. 🙂

First off, shelling peas. No wonder why you see old ladies sitting on their porch (in the South) shelling peas in the daytime in the movies. IT TAKES FOREVER. Thank goodness this recipe only called for 1 cup of peas or I think I would have been doing it for days. I can’t even imagine shelling peas for a whole dish of them. Forget it. One cup is plenty for me.

This was delicious and easy. Boil the pasta, add the peas to cook for 30 seconds.

Meanwhile melt the butter, add the cream, pepper, lemon zest and parm cheese. I probably could have doubled the sauce portion cause it would have been that much more saucy. But this was good for a first attempt.

Will be making this again for sure.

    I’ve wanted to try this one- but for the shelling of the peas. I might have to make it with (gasp) frozen peas. Won’t be as good- but I’m a touch lazy.

  2. If you plan for it and sit down and watch TV it’s not that bad. 🙂
