Easy Alfredo with Peas


  • 1 pkg. (375 g) Catelli Smart Spaghetti
  • 375 mL whipping cream
  • 2 cups (500 mL) peas, fresh (or frozen optional)
  • 1 cup (250 mL) shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup (80 mL) green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) ground nutmeg
  • Salt to taste


  1. Add 4 litres of water to a pot and add 1 tbsp (15 mL) salt to water. Bring to a boil.
  2. Heat a large pot or frying pan over medium heat. Once the pan is hot, add cream and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 4 minutes to slightly thicken. Keep warm.
  3. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions. Add peas to the hot cream and return to a simmer. Once pasta is cooked, drain well and add to the hot sauce.
  4. Add Parmesan cheese, nutmeg and sliced green onions and bring to a simmer. Adjust salt to taste and serve at once.


Chef tip: To add a little more gusto to the dish, experiment with garlic and mushrooms in the sauce and finish it off by stirring an egg yolk into the dish.
