SIMPLE Pea Pasta recipe! This easy and healthy dinner dish uses fresh sugar snap peas and only takes 15 minutes from to start to finish! It’s my favorite Spring and Summer garden recipe! It’s completely vegan too!
Pea Pasta Recipe
There is a strong possibility that while you are reading this I am daydreaming about this pea pasta for dinner. During the Summer time when it’s peak garden season this is our go to dinner that we have a few times a week. Once we start harvesting sugar snap peas by the pound (right now there’s over 10 pounds worth in my fridge!) then we start to sing “It’s pasta time..”.
Let’s start at those fresh ingredients, just picked from the garden. There’s sugar snap peas, chopped lettuce, radishes and one gorgeous tomato. I counted the roma tomatoes a few days ago and there’s over 200 on the plants ready to turn red. July is going to be tomato time!
Simple Pea Pasta
The sugar snap peas are almost done with their Spring harvest, but we’ve got a bunch to last us. Not only do I love these peas fresh as a afternoon snack, but peas and pasta go together perfectly. The peas aren’t cooked so they have a nice crisp taste to them in every bite.
(Ps. If you want to go wild, make Roasted Sugar Snap Peas!)
The worst part of peas is puling away those strings. I hate doing that job. My husband and I often joke that if we ever have a child, this will be one of the first things we teach them.
Lettuce is another vegetable that isn’t thought of as a match for pasta, but it’s perfect in this dish. If your family doesn’t love greens as much as you do and isn’t pleased with that salad you put on the table, try chopping up lettuce and adding it to your next pasta dish.
After you chop up all your vegetables, throw them in a bowl. After the pasta is done, we’ll throw it on top. By throwing the vegetables in the bottom, they will be easy to stir around evenly.
Time out. Let’s marvel at this radish.
Did you swoon at it? Ok, me too. Now moving on…
Now, time to boil the pasta. I love this dish with egg noodles or tricolor pasta!
The Best Summertime Pasta Dish!
Now my favorite part, this simple pea pasta dish takes 10 minutes to make. After the pasta is done, throw it in your dish with your vegetables and pour some olive oil on top. The always tricky pour the olive oil while holding the camera shot, thankfully I got it in one frame.
Along with some oregano, salt and pepper, mix up the pasta and it’s done! Throw some in a bowl and admire at the beautiful dish you just made.
I really do love that there’s a ton of vegetables in every single bite!
