This simple and vibrant dish combines the dream team ingredients of lemon, ricotta, broad beans and peas for a side or starter that would be welcome on any summer table: "As kids, it was always our job before big lunches to sit down together and remove the peas and beans from their pods and we have extremely fond memories of those times. We used to think we were being a real help to the proceedings; that without us, it would not have been possible to get the lunch ready in time. We were shelling pea champions and the race was on. Now, with children of our own, we see the very needed distraction this seemingly important job created and we encourage our kids to help with such tasks ourselves now. It is also such a great way to get kids engaged in food and they enjoy eating it more as a result. Everybody is a winner in the preparation of shelling peas and broad beans it would seem! We have created this dish with ricotta, but it would also go very well with burrata."
