Pea, lemon & prosciutto pasta


  • Heat a little oil in a heavy-bottomed pot and gently sauté the prosciutto until fairly tender.
  • Then add the peas with the spring onions and briefly cook, tossing well.
  • Add the grated rind of 1 lemon and 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice. Stir well and then add about ½ cup stock, a little salt and a decent amount of ground pepper. Gently cook until the peas are tender, adding more stock if needed. Taste for seasoning.
  • At the same time, cook the pasta in a large pot of lightly salted, boiling water until al dente. Drain well and add the pasta to the sauce, together with 50 gm grated parmesan. Gently toss until well combined and the cheese has melted.
  • Serve the pasta in individual bowls with extra parmesan sprinkled on top, if you like.
