It is wonderfully warm and my garden is filled with the green stuff. But winter will be here soon enough when the only green I may find is a small package of frozen peas. This has to be one of the most unremarkable pasta dishes I make. It is way too easy and uncomplicated and yet there are times in the winter months when the fridge is close to empty and you reach for staples to make one more meal before having to venture out to the store for some fresh groceries. Pair it with a slice of garlic toast, grab the cookie tin and you are set for an evening of Netflix binge.
