Supper Club: Nigel Slater’s peas, pappardelle, parmesan is spring on a plate

Supper Club: Nigel Slater’s peas, pappardelle, parmesan is spring on a plate

Simple, seasonal, superb – this perfect cheesy pasta dish is everything we want to eat right now.

Nigel Slater’s peas, pappardelle, parmesan
Serves 2

Ingredients

  • 600ml vegetable stock
  • 300g peas (podded weight)
  • 300g pappardelle
  • 25g Parmesan, grated
  • 200g fresh young sheep’s or goat’s cheese


Method

  1. Put the vegetable stock on to boil (you can use water at a push). Keeping a handful of raw peas to one side, cook the rest in the boiling stock for five to seven minutes, depending on their size. Whilst the peas cook, boil the pappardelle for seven to eight minutes in generously salted water.
  2. Put the peas and 150ml of their cooking liquor into a blender and process until smooth, introducing more stock as necessary to produce a thin, brightly flavoured sauce. Drain the pasta and return to the pan, pour in the pea sauce, scatter over the Parmesan and fold in. Check the seasoning. Divide between two deep plates.
  3. Break the sheep’s cheese into large pieces, scatter over the pasta with the reserved raw peas and serve.
