Oakmont Financial Group's Fresh Linguine with Spring Peas
- 1 pound fresh linguine
- 2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 yellow onion, finely chopped
- 2 Tablespoons minced green garlic
- 1/4 cup dry white wine
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 3 oz Point Reyes Toma, shredded
- Zest of two lemons
- 1/2 cup minced fresh herbs (recommended: combination of mint, chives & parsley)
- 8 oz pancetta, diced, cooked until crisp and drained well
- 1 pound fresh peas, shelled, blanched and shocked (can substitute 8 oz frozen peas, thawed)
- Salt & pepper, to taste
- 1/2 cup toasted breadcrumbs (optional)
Bring large pot of salted water to a boil.
In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onion, green garlic and a pinch of salt. Cook stirring occasionally, until onions and garlic soften, keeping heat low enough to prevent browning. Add wine wine, raising heat slightly, so wine can evaporate. Reduce heat to low and stir cream. Once mixture is hot, stir in shredded Toma cheese until melted and smooth.
Cook linguine in boiling water until al dente. Drain pasta.
Add cooked past to hot sauce, turning burner back to medium-high heat. Toss pasta with sauce until well coated. Just before serving, add lemon zest, herbs, pancetta and peas. Toss, taste and adjust seasonings, as necessary.
Garnish with toasted breadcrumbs, if desired. Serve immediately.
