Fettuccine with Peas | Pasta with Peas | Peas Pasta

After a long time, i have joined the Blogging Marathon for this month,so for the week 3 , i have chosen "Vegetarian Dinner Recipe". This Pasta dish is ideal for quick dinner recipe(will be ready in 20 mins) yet finger licking delicious. I have tried this recipe from the cook book(i forgot the name of the book) by "Giuliano Hazan".He is an italian cook book author and this book have wonderful collection of vegetarian pasta recipe and all the recipes are very simple and most of them doesn't need cheese at all. Though i have tried many recipes from it, this one is the most favorite of us.Don't underestimate this pasta dish with the minimal ingredients, it tastes so good with the sweet flavor of peas. The author suggest to use the fresh peas for great result, though i had prepared with frozen peas so far, i love the flavor so much,but waiting to try this with fresh peas when are in season.
