6-Ingredient Ditalini with Peas and Parmesan is the perfect lazy-night dinner. All you need is a few ingredients and less than 20 minutes of time.



1/2 pound Ditalini pasta

4 quarts water

a generous amount of sea salt

1 cup frozen peas

1 cup diced onion

2 tbsp butter

2 tbsp olive oil

1 cup parmesan cheese


In a large heated skillet, add the olive oil and the butter. Once the butter is melted, add the diced onion, salt, and pepper. Cook until the onions are translucent and brown around the edges. When ready set aside. Now we will boil the pasta.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a rolling boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente (about 10 minutes).

Right before the noodles have finished cooking, add the frozen peas in with the pasta. Cook in the same seasoned water for about two minutes.

When ready, strain the pasta and peas. Transfer the pasta and peas in with the onions. Toss and mix to combine.

Add the parmesan cheese and mix.

Serve right away with extra cheese and cracked black pepper on top.
