Pasta with Peas, Chives & Cream Sauce


  • 1 lb. dried angel hair pasta
  • 1 ½ cups heavy cream
  • ½ cup milk
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) grated Parmesan
  • 1 10-ounce package frozen peas, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives
Cook the pasta according to the package directions.
In a large saucepan, over medium-low heat, warm the cream, milk, 1 1/4 teaspoons salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Add the cooked pasta and Parmesan and stir until the cheese melts and the sauce thickens, 2 to 3 minutes.
Stir the peas into the pasta until heated through, about 2 minutes. Divide among bowls and top with chives.

Makes 10 servings (this is what we got out of it)

This was a very tasty pasta dish. It seemed so simple and yet had excellent flavor. The recipe says it makes 4 servings, I don’t know if I could have eaten that much of a portion. At dinner time we each had 1 serving (6) and then a few had seconds and we still had some left to put in the fridge. Those are the types of meals I look for!
