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

Wash produce before use


Cook the fettuccine

  • Bring a medium sauce pot of generously salted water to a boil.
Add the fettuccine a few noodles at a time and cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain the fettuccine, reserving ¼ cup [½ cup] pasta cooking water. Return the fettuccine to the pot; drizzle with about 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil and toss to keep the noodles from sticking.
While the water heats and the fettuccine cooks, prepare the vegetables.


Prep and cook the vegetables

  • Cut the sugar snap peas in half on the diagonal.
  • Cut the radicchio in half lengthwise, then cut away any core; thinly slice enough radicchio to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
In a large frying pan over high heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the snap peas and tomatoes, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the snap peas are crisp-tender and the tomatoes are lightly charred, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the radicchio and cook until starting to wilt, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm. Do not clean the pan.
While the vegetables cook, prepare the garnishes.


Prep the garnishes; finish the pasta

  • Coarsely chop the walnuts.
  • Strip the basil leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the white bean sauce base, 3 tablespoons [¼ cup plus 2 TBL] pasta cooking water, and half the Parmesan. Set aside the remaining Parmesan for garnish.
In the same pan used for the vegetables, stir in the white bean sauce and cook over medium heat until the sauce is warmed through, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat, add the fettuccine and vegetables, and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the fettuccine and vegetables to individual bowls. Garnish with the walnuts, basil, and remaining Parmesan and serve.
