  7. Add the peas and a tablespoon of Parmesan and slowly pour in the milk. Bring to a gentle boil and remove from the heat.
  8. Cook the pasta as per the packet instructions, strain and add to your sauce with the fresh chopped basil and finely chopped green olives.
  9. Pour into 4 separate small oven dishes (6”x4” / 15cm x 10cm) and sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
  10. If you want to freeze for later use, cover the dishes with cling film and allow to cool. Then freeze immediately. You can mark and date them, and they should last for up to three months in the freezer. Remember to defrost fully before cooking.
