I grew up on my mother's yummylicious cooking where every meal is prepared lovingly by my mother. Her cooking is touch and feel and she doesnt use a recipe book nor does she write them down. Some of these are a collection of her recipes handed down to her and now to me. Her recipes are always simple but downright delicious.

Lemon Pea And Ricotta Pasta
Simple yet delicious
I am too tired to fuss about in the kitchen, so this is my quick fix (taken from my newly acquired Australian Womans Weekly recipe book)
375 gm angel hair pasta
2 cups frozen peas
2 tsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic (thinly sliced)
2 tsp finely grated lemon rind
1/2 cup lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Cook pasta in large saucepan of boiling water until tender(see instructions on packet); add peas during the last minute of pasta cooking time. Drain, reserving 1/4 cup cooking liquid. Rinse pasta and peas under cold water, drain.
2. Heat oil in small frying pan, add garlic and heat until fragrant.
3. Combine pasta and peas in large bowl with reserved cooking liquid, garlic, lemon rind and juice, Toss well and stir in Ricotta cheese.
