Serves 6

INGREDIENTS

1 shallot, minced
1 cup fresh English peas, steamed soft and mashed
¼ cup fresh mint, chopped
¼ cup ricotta cheese
¼ cup goat cheese
½ teaspoon lemon zest
Salt
Freshly ground pepper
Herbed pasta dough

For the sauce

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 shallot
½ cup vegetable broth
Juice and zest of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon mint, chopped
2 tablespoons butter

Sweet Pea Flowers, for garnish

DIRECTIONS

Mix and mash all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl until all ingredients are well incorporated and smooth. Using fresh herb pasta sheets cut into about 2 square inches, add 1 dollop of filling. Cover with another 2 inch pasta square. Using wet fingers, seal all sides of ravioli by pinching down, making sure the raviolis are sealed well.

Place raviolis in a large pot of salted boiling water. Boil for about 3 minutes, or until the raviolis float to the top of the pan. Strain, place a few raviolis in each serving dish.

For the sauce

In a sauté pan over medium heat, add olive oil. Cook shallot until soft, about 3 minutes. Add vegetable broth and lemon and reduce. Add lemon zest and mint. Finish with butter and serve over cooked raviolis and garnish with sweet pea flowers.
