SPRING VEGETABLE PAPPARDELLE
(HUGO MATHESON, THE KITCHEN CAFÉ, BOULDER)

  • 1 packet pappardelle
  • 1 c freshly shelled English peas
  • 1 c freshly shelled fava beans
  • 1 c tender asparagus, chopped into 1/2-inch sticks
  • 1/4 c extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves fresh garlic, sliced
  • pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 c heavy cream
  • 10 fresh mint leaves, chopped
  • 1 c freshly grated Parmesan or pecorino cheese
  • salt and pepper

Bring a large pot of salted water to a strong boil. Add pasta and return to a boil.

Add peas, beans and asparagus. Bring back to a boil and cook until the pasta still has a bite — about 6 to 8 minutes more.
While cooking the pasta and vegetables, heat a large sauté pan to medium-high. Add olive oil, garlic and crushed red pepper flakes. Just when garlic starts to brown, add cream.
Drain cooked pasta and vegetables, keeping a little of the water (to thin the sauce, if needed). Add pasta and vegetables to the sauce.
Sprinkle in chopped mint and half of the cheese; toss to coat everything well.
Season with salt and pepper. If the sauce is too thick, add a little of the cooking water.
To serve, top with remaining cheese and a good glug of olive oil.
