    Directions:

    1. 1
      Bring a stick pot of heavily salted water to a boil and add pasta. Cook until al dente; about 6-mins.
    2. 2
      In the meantime, heat oil in large skillet. Add garlic slices, stirring constantly so they don't burn. Once a light-golden brown, spoon out garlic and set aside.
    3. 3
      Slowly, add tomato sauce to pan, taking care not to splatter yourself with the popping hot oil. Add, peas with their liquid, herbs and salt and pepper to taste; stirring occasionally. Cook for about 6-mins.
    4. 4
      Once pasta is cooked to perfection, scoop out of water and transfer directly into sauce. Fold pasta into sauce. Remove from heat. Fold in about half the cheese.
    5. 5
      Garnish with additional cheese.
