Nduja, peas and grana pasta is an easy to make and full of flavour, a 15 minute, recipe. A dish for all those days that despite being tired and not having much time, you still believe that microwave should be the last option.. the sweetness of the green peas perfectly balances the spiciness of the ndjua adding texture to the pasta with the grana riserva o adding an extra layer of flavour


First boil the water for the pasta.

In a pan add two tablespoons of oil and 4 or 5 teaspoon of nduja based on how spicy you like your food and fry at low temperature until the nduja melts. Then add green peas, whether fresh or frozen and fry for about 5 minutes. Once ready, put aside and wait for the pasta to cook.

Once the water has reached boiling point, add some rock salt and throw the pasta in, taking into account the cooking time, drain the pasta “al dente” and put it back in the sauce pan and toss. Serve immediately, adding plenty of grana riserva.
