First thing that we need to do is make out pasta. We have a pasta dough recipe, its simple to make and can be prepared in 10 minutes.
Take the dough that is already prepared.
Sprinkle some bench flour on the dough and use a rolling pin to roll out the dough.
Fold the rolled out dough 4 times and then cut slices of pasta.
Boil water in a pot and put in the pasta. It would take about 3 minutes to cook the pasta.
Take out the pasta from boiling water and rinse well.
Heat a pan on medium heat and then add Shiitake and baby bellas mushroom. It will cook pretty quickly; add some salt and black pepper.
When the mushrooms start to cook down a bit, add 1 clove minced garlic, 1 shallot minced, put another touch of olive oil.
Add 2 big round dollops of ricotta cheese and put the spring peas that are already blanched.
Then add the pasta and some more seasoning of salt and black pepper. Give it a stir.
Now garnish the pasta with fresh chives and thymes. Mix using a tong.
Serve in a large plate. Garnish with remaining herbs, little peppery extra virgin olive oil and some Parmigiano red chiano cheese.
