Pasta with peas is an easy pasta recipe with homemade pesto, crunchy pine nuts, and green peas. Serve it as a side dish or main dish for an easy dinner.
If you have a couple extra minutes, toast the pine nuts. It brings out their natural oils and enhances the flavor. I toast mine in a dry skillet on the stove – it doesn’t take long; just warm them up, shake the pan a few times, and once they’re fragrant, they’re done.
This pasta can be enjoyed warm, at room temperature, or chilled.
Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days.
