14 Nov Pea Shoots Pasta
Simple Pea Shoots Pasta recipe that’s delicious and healthy! Farfalle pasta is mixed with pea shoots, peas and Parmesan cheese to make a 30 minute easy recipe that your family will love!
Cook your pasta according to box instructions. Set pasta aside. I recommend using farfalle pasta , but honestly, you can use whatever pasta you have in your pantry.
Bring 2 cups of broth to a boil in a medium pot, add frozen peas and cook for 4 minutes. With 2 minutes remaining, add pea shoots. I like cooking my peas in vegetable broth, but you can also use chicken broth.
IMPORTANT! Drain peas and pea shoots from broth, but save 1/2 cup of broth and set aside.
Place pea shoots on a cutting board and chop them up. I like to do them all at once with a sharp knife, giving them 3-4 chops.
Add olive oil to a large skillet and heat over medium heat, adding minced garlic and scallions and cooking until slightly browned, about 2 minutes. Add peas and pea shoots, stir and cook an additional 2 minutes. Add remaining broth to pea shoots mixture.
Add cooked pasta, parmesan cheese and lemon juice to skillet, stirring to completely mix and coat all the ingredients with parmesan. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Add finely chopped fresh mint on top, serve on plates. Not only is this dish beautiful, but it tastes so good too!
