Fold them into a simple, silky sauce of pesto and butter, and add your main squeeze: a splash of fresh lemon juice. Sprinkle on some Parm, and now there’s a supper that’s ready for its close up!

Boil the pasta & peas
Add the pasta to the pot of boiling water; stir gently to separate. Boil, stirring occasionally, 4 to 6 min., until al dente. In the final min., add the peas. Reserving ½ cup cooking water (double for 4 portions), drain and toss with a drizzle of olive oil to prevent sticking.

Sauté the broccoli
Meanwhile, remove the stem ends of the string peas; thinly slice each pod on an angle. In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Sauté the broccoli, 5 to 7 min., until beginning to brown. Add 2 tbsp water (double for 4 portions) and cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 min., until the water has evaporated and the broccoli is tender; season with S&P.

Start the sauce
To the pan of broccoli, add the string peas, pasta and peas, demi-glace, ½ the reserved cooking water, the spices and S&P. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 min., until the sauce has slightly reduced.

Finish the sauce
Off the heat, to the pan of sauce, add the pesto, 3 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions) and S&P; stir well. If the sauce seems dry, gradually add the remaining cooking water until you achieve your desired consistency. Add the lemon juice; stir well.
