2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the pappardelle

Bring a medium sauce pot of generously salted water to a boil. Separate the pappardelle so the noodles don’t clump together during cooking. Add the pappardelle and cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain the pappardelle, reserving ¼ cup [½ cup] pasta cooking water. While the water is heating and the pappardelle is cooking, prepare the snap peas and mint. 


Prep the remaining ingredients; finish the pasta

  • Trim the ends from the snap or snow peas if needed; cut the pods in half on the diagonal. 
  • Strip the mint leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves. Set aside half for garnish. 

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the snap or snow peas, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender, 2 to 3 minutes. 

Stir in the pappardelle, reserved pasta cooking water, peas, and sweet pea pistou and cook until the pappardelle is coated with the sauce and the peas are heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in half the mint, and season to taste with salt and pepper. 


Transfer the pappardelle to individual bowls. Garnish with the Parmesan, remaining mint, and as many chile flakes as you like and serve.
