Weekend Chef - Pasta con Piselli

I decided to start posting an Italian recipe every Friday for those of us courageous enough to venture into the kitchen. Some recipes will be from my secret family collection. Others may be recipes I will try that particular weekend. So if you'd like to try the recipes out with me, I'd love to hear your comments.

Here's my first recipe. This one is a tried and true family favourite.


Pasta Con Piselli

This is one recipe that I make often. No matter what changes I make to it or what I add to it, it always tastes great.

1 medium chopped onion

4 cloves minced garlic

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil



1/4 cup butter

1 cup broth


Saute onion and garlic in olive oil and butter

Add ham, peas, and broth. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes or until the pasta finishes cooking. Toss onto cooked pasta.
