Pea Mint Pasta

Pea Mint Pesto Pasta is made by making a type of ‘pesto’ out of fresh peas and mint, with the bright flavor of lemon juice and the bite of garlic. This is a great summer picnic snack since it holds really well at chilled or room temps, although it is great eaten hot or cold.

Another bonus? Kids love to help make pea mint pesto! If you’re making it in a blender or food processor, they can help press the buttons and add ingredients in the hopper tube. If you’re making this pesto by hand, chop the ingredients beforehand and let them do the whisking. Even though it’s really just a simple sauce tossed with pasta, it’s got a big flavor that feels fancier than it really is!

Pea mint pesto pasta will store well in the fridge. Make it and hold for up to 4 days if tightly covered. It’s a wonderful addition to kids’ lunches, too. If you’re making it as a side, it goes really well with Roasted Chicken with Root Veggies.
