Chef notes

Simple mushrooms, frozen peas and pasta are transformed into a luxurious dish with the addition of cream in this easy vegetarian recipe. The five-ingredient (plus salt and oil) dish is effortless to make on weeknights, whether you're looking for quick family-friendly dinners to add to the weekly meal plan or delicious and healthy pasta recipes. The best part is this dish's versatility. With sweet peas (bought frozen) and warm, earthy mushrooms, it tastes like springtime any time. 

Preparation

  1. Bring a 6-quart pot of water to a boil for the pasta. Add 1 tablespoon salt to the water and when it dissolves, stir in the farfalle.
  2. While the farfalle cooks, heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a large saucepan or skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in half the sliced mushrooms, then cook without stirring for 3 to 4 minutes until the mushrooms have browned. Push them to the side of the skillet and add the remaining olive oil and mushrooms.
  3. When all the mushrooms have browned, reduce the heat to medium. Stir in the garlic and cook for 30 seconds until fragrant.
  4. Stir in the peas and cook, stirring occasionally, until completely warmed through. Add the cream and cook until mostly absorbed by the vegetables, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. When the farfalle is al dente, add it to the vegetables along with 1/4 cup of the pasta cooking water. Toss to combine and let the pasta cook for 30 seconds more to absorb the sauce.
  6. Divide the pasta between 4 bowls and serve immediately.
