Inspired from a Gordon Ramsay recipe, I've put a few little spins on this incredibly tasty starter. Super easy to make, and sure to blow away your guests, this starter puts peas in a whole new light.

"What a tasty treat! Using peas as a spread is truly unique and the outcome was delicious. I hope to have another occasion soon when I get to show these off again."

Ingredients

Are you making this? 
400 grams Frozen Peas
125 grams Mascarpone
4 tablespoons Olive Oil
1 ball Mozzarella
1 cup Romano Cheese; Grated
1 Salt and Pepper to taste
12 slices Ciabatta Bread

Original recipe makes 6

Servings  

Preparation

Traditionally made with fresh peas, I've found very little difference between the frozen alternative, and it's much easier to get a bag of frozen than to find shelled fresh. So I start by boiling some frozen peas in salted water for five minutes. Afterward, drain and pour the peas into a blender or food processor. Add the mascarpone, 4 tablespoons of olive oil, and salt and pepper, and blend to a rough paste. Set aside.

Cut your bread into square slices and lightly toast on a baking sheet in the oven under broil, then drizzle with some olive oil.

Spread the pea mixture on the bread, and tear up the mozzarella placing a couple bits on each piece. Sprinkle over the Romano cheese, and drizzle with a bit more olive oil. Serve immediately and get ready for the amazed compliments!
