Fettuccine with Basil

Category: food

The addition of peas to this quick and easy pasta recipe makes it a real treat. Crème fraîche and feta complement the fresh flavours and provide a smooth and creamy texture to the dish. This one is perfect heated up for lunch the next day too!


1. Cook the fettuccine in a large saucepan of salted, boiling water for 6-7 minutes. Drain well, reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid.

2. Pour the cooking liquid into a saute pan and bring to a simmer over a moderate heat. Add the peas, cover, and cook for 2 minutes.

3. Remove the lid and add the cooked fettuccine, creme fraiche, and feta. Bring to a simmer, tossing and stirring occasionally, until the sauce coats the pasta.

4. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir through the basil leaves before lifting onto plates and serving.
