1 box of Farfalle pasta (used half the box for 2 portions)
3 cups of sugar snap peas
2 cups ricotta cheese
1 garlic scape
pinch of chile flake
salt and pepper
First, blanch the sugar snap peas. Do this by heating a pan full of water to a simmer, and adding the sugar snap peas for just about a minute or two.
Take your 2 cups of ricotta and place in a bowl. Add the zest and juice of one lemon. I used fresh oregano because I love the combination. Add a pinch of chile flake, fresh ground pepper and sea salt. Mix thoroughly.
Cut the garlic scapes into thin slices. I put mine in my mortar and pestle, and added a touch of salt, and olive oil. I ground it into a paste. You could also use a blender, food processor, or feel free to just use thinly sliced pieces as well.
Cook your farfalle or choice of pasta to directions and set aside to cool.
I cut the sugar snap peas in half, and tossed them with the farfalle. I then added my ricotta, garlic scape paste, and mixed thoroughly. Season with salt and pepper according to your taste.
