Directions

  1. Put the peas in the colander and put the colander in the sink.
  2. Fill the pot halfway with water and bring to a boil over high heat.
  3. Add the pasta and cook until tender, about 12 minutes. Just before the pasta is done, use the mug to carefully scoop out 1/2 cup or so of cooking water and set it aside.
  4. Drain the pasta in the colander with the peas.
  5. Put the pasta and peas in the bowl and add the oil, butter, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
  6. If the pasta seems dry, add some of the reserved cooking water, then mix again. Add the Parmesan cheese.
