Mascarpone Pasta with Ham and Green Peas – Perfect not Only for Kids
I am surprised I didn’t write this post earlier because mascarpone pasta recipe has been a classic in our family for many years. It is so easy and quick to prepare yet so delicious! I have served this mascarpone pasta with ham to our friends on some informal occasions but – probably more importantly – it is a hit with children.
When my daughters were small, and they had their friends over in our house, I could be almost sure that if I had cooked this meal, all the children would eat it. But even now when they are so much older, their (different) friends still enjoy it tremendously.
Another good point about this recipe is that you can adjust it to different needs without losing too much of its flavour. If you or your children are not big fans of green peas, you can omit them*. And if you want to cook it for a vegetarian, you can omit the ham*. I made it that way for my vegetarian daughter, and although she was sceptical at the beginning and worried it wasn’t going to be that tasty, she did enjoy it a lot.
*However much adaptable this recipe is, I wouldn’t omit both: the ham and the peas at the same time 😉
