  1. To make the vinaigrette, whisk the garlic and single cream into the olive oil. Slowly whisk in the lemon juice, caster sugar and 3 tbsp water you want the dressing to be the consistency of single cream. Season to taste.
  2. Cook the pasta in plenty of salted water until al dente, then drain. Tip back into the saucepan and pour the dressing over. Mix well and leave to cool slightly.
  3. Meanwhile, blanch the broad beans in boiling water for 2 minutes, refresh under cold water, drain and (if you like) remove the outer skins. Blanch the peas in boiling water for 2 minutes, then refresh and drain. Stir the beans and peas into the pasta with the spring onions and mozzarella. Season to taste and serve.
