284 gm Pasta, gluten free, dry (283 grams)
1 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
1 cup Frozen green peas (cooked)
1 pinch Sea Salt (to taste)
1 dash Black pepper (to taste)
1 cup Basil, fresh (pea pesto - leaves)
1 cup Frozen green peas (pea pesto - thawed)

1/2 whole lemon(s) Lemon juice (pea pesto - juice from half a lemon)
1/2 cup (shredded) Parmesan cheese, vegan (pea pesto - 1/3-1/2 cup)

1. Cook pasta according to package directions, then drain and toss with olive oil.

2. Stir the pesto into the pasta, toss in the peas, season with salt and pepper and serve immediately.

3. Perfect Pea Pesto: Add ingredients to the food processor and blend until almost smooth. I personally like a bit of texture in my pesto, but how smooth you make it is up to you.
