I grew up eating pasta, and I love it.  It’s my go-to meal if I’m short on time…and money.

If you are a ricotta fan, you will love this.  Or a pea fan, for that matter.

Tips:

I could not find any tagliatelle for the life of me, so I substituted vermicelli.

Definitely save some pasta cooking water and add it at the end, a little at a time.  It thins out the thickness of the sauce, to make it a little creamier.

If you don’t like ricotta, substitute mascarpone cheese.  It would make the sauce lovely and creamy.

Steps

1
Done

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook until tender, but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes, or according to the package instructions. Reserve 1 cup of pasta water.

2
Done

Meanwhile, heat the olive oil and garlic in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat, until the garlic is fragrant.

3
Done

Add the sausage and cook, using a wooden spoon to break it up into bite-size bits. When the sausage has browned, about 5 minutes, push it over to one side of the pan. Add the peas to the pan and, using the back of the wooden spoon, smash teh peas.

4
Done

Turn off the heat. Add the ricotta to the pan and stir to combine. Then add the cooked pasta and toss to coat. If needed, add the pasta water 1/4 cup at a time to moisten pasta.

5
Done

Add the basil, Pecorino and salt. Serve immediately.
