Peas and Stilton pasta

That’s unfortunate I have not used fresh peas for this recipe as I must admit you lose a bit of their taste when using cooked peas. The mix with Stilton is however very nice and makes very creamy pasta.

The dish is nicely seasoned with the wild garlic which I discovered recently thanks to a friend. I had never seen garlic under the form of a salad leaves and the taste is surprisingly strong. The leaves look like this:
