Mascarpone Pea Pasta

For those of you who follow me on Twitter, you’ll have seen that our oven has been broken for the past week. Never before had I realised how heavily I rely on the oven when preparing dinner. I’ve been focusing on a lot of stovetop only dishes and this was one that I made the other night.
