Green Pea Pasta Green Pea Pasta
Vegetarian Nut-Free Green Pea Pasta with Feta and Dill

  • Ingredients:
    1 pound green peas (fresh or frozen)
    3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
    2 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
    1 tsp kosher salt
    1/2 tsp black pepper
    2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
    1 cup sugar snap peas, trimmed, strings removed, and sliced on the diagonal
    12 ounces short egg-free pasta, any shape
    4-6 ounces feta cheese
  • Instructions:
    Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the green peas and cook 2-4 minutes until crisp tender. Use a slotted spoon to remove the peas from the water and set aside.

    Return the pot to a boil and cook pasta according to package instructions. Reserve the cooking water.

    Meanwhile, transfer all but 1 cup of the green peas to a blender. Add the olive oil, almost all of the dill (reserve a little for garnish), salt, pepper, and lemon juice and puree until smooth, adding the reserved cooking water from the pasta until you have a smooth, saucy consistency.

    Drain the pasta and toss with the green pea sauce. Add the remaining whole green peas, sliced snap peas and feta, toss again. Garnish with lemon wedges and remaining dill.
