Ingredients

  • 1/2

    cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 4

    large garlic cloves, thinly sliced

  • 1

    cup fresh baby peas (1 pound unshelled)

  • 1

    pound linguine

  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 1

    tablespoon coarsely chopped marjoram

  • 1/2

    cup crumbled or shaved ricotta salata or feta cheese (about 2 ounces)

Directions

Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet. Add the garlic and cook over low heat, stirring, until very soft and golden, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat. 2 In a large saucepan of boiling salted water, blanch the peas in a strainer until just tender, about 3 minutes. Transfer the peas to a bowl. 3 Add the linguine to the saucepan and boil until al dente. Drain the linguine, reserving 1/4 cup of the cooking water. Return the pasta to the saucepan and toss with the garlic oil, peas and reserved pasta water. Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with the marjoram. Top with the cheese and serve at once.
