Step 1: Prepare one batch of Warm Verjuice Ricotta and allow it to cool.

Step 2: Shell the broad beans and set aside.

Step 3: Note: The broad beans also have an outer pod which if you have the time and inclination, you can remove the skin by pinching the bean to give you a very bright green broad bean.

Step 4: Place a large pot of salted water over high heat and bring it to a boil. Place in the spaghetti and cook for 3 minutes, then add the shelled broad beans and cook for a further 3 minutes.

Step 5: Remove from the heat and strain off the water. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and keep warm.

Step 6: To make the dressing, place the Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Verjuice into a small mixing bowl, season with salt and pepper and whisk together well.

Step 7: Pour the dressing over the warm spaghetti, add the parsley and tarragon, then season with sea salt and freshly ground white pepper. Toss together until everything is well combined and the dressing evenly coats the spaghetti.

Step 8: Place onto a large platter or divide between 4 serving bowls, crumble the ricotta over the top and serve.

Step 9: Any left over ricotta can be placed into a clean jar or bowl and kept in the fridge for up to 5 days.
