Bowties With Sugar Snaps, Lemon and Ricotta

Bowties With Sugar Snaps, Lemon and Ricotta

As sugar snap season comes and goes all to quickly for my addicted tastes, consider this a template for any green vegetable — segments of asparagus, green beans, snow pea pods, or whole sweet peas — that you think might enjoy some lemon/ricotta/parmesan/salt/pepper treatment. Most of these other vegetables will benefit from 2 to 3 minutes boiling time, so add them earlier in the pasta cooking process.


  • Salt for pasta water
  • 1 pound sugar snaps
  • 1 pound dried pasta bowties
  • 1/2 cup (about 1 ounce) finely grated pecorino romano or parmesan cheese
  • Glug, then drizzle, of olive oil
  • Coarse or fine sea salt for sprinkling
  • Ground black pepper or red pepper flakes
  • Juice of 1 lemon, plus more to taste
  • Few leaves of mint, slivered
  • 1 cup ricotta; use fresh if you can find or have motivation to make it
Total Time:
30 minutes
