Bring a large pot of water to a boil for the pasta.

Salt pasta water, drop pasta to cook to a minute shy of al dente. 

Add peas to simmering stock and cook 3-4 minutes then stir in the ricotta and warm through; add thyme and lemon zest. Reserve 1/2 cup starchy, pasta water then drain pasta. Add pasta to sauce along with the starchy water and grated cheese; toss to coat. Add most of the parsley and mint, and transfer to serving bowl.
