“Mac and Cheese” with Peas and Tomatoes

Boil water and add one pound of pasta – cook according to directions
Save one cup of pasta water for later and when pasta is done – take hot pasta and mix with one cup ricotta cheese

While pasta is cooking, Saute 2 minced garlic cloves in olive oil
Once garlic has softened, add in about a cup of frozen peas (or more if you think your kids really like them) – season with salt and pepper

After the peas have cooked about 4 minutes, add in the reserved pasta water and let simmer for a few minutes (not too long)

Cut a pint of grape tomatoes in half and throw in with the pea mixture (turn off heat)

Then add in the pasta mixed with the ricotta into the pan until everything is mixed together
