About this recipe: I mixed a handful of fresh herbs in with some ground Parmesan and almonds and tossed with hot pasta and fresh peas to make this easy dinner.


Serves: 4 

  • 450g fusilli pasta
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 handful fresh herbs (e.g. parsley, sage, oregano)
  • 100g Parmesan cheese, cubed
  • 50g whole almonds
  • 50ml olive oil
  • 250g fresh or frozen peas

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to the boil over a high heat. Add the pasta and cook according to packet instructions, or until al dente.
  2. Meanwhile, place the garlic in a food processor and pulse to mince followed by the herbs, pulsing to mince. Transfer to a small bowl, and set aside.
  3. No need to rinse the bowl of the food processor, just add the Parmesan and almonds and process to grind; it just takes a minute. The texture should be crumbly, not a paste.
  4. Drain pasta, and place pot back on the hob over a medium heat. Add the olive oil, and mix in herbs. Stir for one minute. Add peas, and mix thoroughly. Remove from heat and stir in cheese and nut mixture. Cover, and set aside for a few minutes to warm the peas. Serve.
