Ingredients You'll Need
Salt and Pepper
1 lb mixed plain and green dried spaghetti
1/4 c unsalted butter,margarine - I recommend imported Parmesan butter if you can find it!)

generous 3/4 cup heavy cream (you can sub a milk/cornstarch mixture)
1/2 cup greated romano cheese
pinch of nutmeg
Cook pasta 8-10 minutes and drain and reserve.
Melt butter in large stock pan. Add peas and cook over low heat, stirring for 4-5 minutes (or more if frozen). Pour in 2/3 cup cream and stir to mix well. Bring to boil and simmer for 1 min.
Add pasta to peas and then add remaining cream. Add romano cheese and season with salt, pepper and nutmed. Toss and serve with extra romano cheese.
