LEMONY PEA & ARUGULA PASTA (V, GF OPTION)

Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 2 servings
Calories 483 kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups bowtie pasta, dry* (white, whole wheat or gluten-free)
  • 2 cups arugula
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 small lemon, juiced
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper

Method

  1. In a medium pot, boil water and cook bowtie pasta according to package instructions.

  2. While the pasta is cooking, combine the lemon juice, oil, salt and pepper in a small bowl to make the dressing. Stir and set aside.

  3. Add the frozen peas to a colander.  When the pasta is done cooking, drain the pasta over the peas, letting the hot water defrost them.  Rinse with cold running water and drain well.

  4. Dump the cooked pasta and peas into a large serving bowl.  Add in the arugula and the dressing. Gently toss until everything is mixed and evenly coated in dressing.

Notes

  • I wouldn't recommend substituting bowtie for another shape of pasta. ¬†Bowtie pasta has a nice chew that goes perfectly with this dish.
  • Nutritional information is approximate and will differ depending on the type of pasta you choose.
