Pasta first!
To start, cook 250g of your favorite pasta al dente according to the package instructions. While the pasta cooks, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1 finely chopped shallot and sauté until softened, about 2-3 minutes.
Next, add 100g of fresh or frozen peas to the skillet and cook for another 2-3 minutes until the peas are tender. Add 150ml of heavy cream to the skillet and bring the mixture to a simmer.

Creamy sauce
Stir in 50g of grated Parmesan cheese until it's melted and well combined. Add salt and pepper to taste, and a handful of fresh basil leaves, torn into small pieces. Squeeze in the juice of half a lemon and stir everything together until the sauce is smooth and creamy.
Finally, add the cooked pasta to the skillet and toss it together with the pea and cream sauce until everything is well coated. Serve hot, garnished with additional Parmesan cheese and fresh basil leaves, if desired.

You can use any type of pasta for this recipe, whether it's spaghetti, penne, or fusilli. You can also use gluten-free pasta if you prefer.
Fresh or frozen peas work equally well in this recipe. If you can't find peas, you can also use other spring vegetables such as asparagus, fava beans, or snow peas.
Heavy cream can be substituted with half-and-half or whole milk for a lighter sauce. Alternatively, you can use a non-dairy cream such as coconut cream or cashew cream for a vegan version of this recipe.
To make this pasta more filling, you can add cooked chicken, shrimp, or tofu to the sauce. Simply sauté the protein separately and add it to the pasta and sauce at the end.
You can make the sauce ahead of time and refrigerate it for up to 2 days. When you're ready to serve, simply reheat the sauce and toss it with freshly cooked pasta.
