Springtime Pea and Parmesan Fettuccine

Pea and Parmesan Fettuccine

Most of the recipes I develop are on the lighter side. Today I am sharing a springtime pea and parmesan fettuccine recipe that is hearty and filling, but not too heavy. The sauce is light and creamy. We are also incorporating fresh herbs and edible flowers whose flavors resemble chive or scallion; perfect for this savory dish, while their color is a vibrant gorgeous purple that will pop on your table. This is a lovely dish fit for spring evenings.
