Farfalle Con Piselli

This is one of these quick pasta dishes. The light creamy sauce is easy to whip up in no time. Farfalle con piselli roughly translates to “butterflies with peas” 


  • 1 box of bow tie pasta
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 cup thawed frozen peas (we love our peas in my house so I tend to grab these 10oz bagged frozen peas and use the whole thing)
  • 1/2 cup light cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • a little bit of ground black pepper


  1. Cook bow tie pasta according to package’s instructions. 
  2. Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Add diced onion and minced garlic. Cook and stir occasionally. Make sure it becomes tender but not browned. Approximately 5 minutes. 
  3. Add peas, light cream, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. When it boils, it’s ready. Remove from the heat and cover to keep warm or leave it on low heat. 
  4. When the pasta finishes cooking, drain it. Mix it with the pea sauce. 
  5. Serve hot.
