Fettuccine with peas cream and pistachios

By

It's peas season in the Northern hemisphere! So, don't miss the occasion to cook them, better if in a creative way. The recipe we are going to show you today is very quick to make: shelling the peas takes the longest time! We made a peas cream to dress our fettuccine, adding a smoky note, with the smoked salmon, and a fresh note with the lemon zest. Finally, the crunchy element: pistachios crumbs. The result is extremely satisfying, even visually, do you agree?
