Pasta with Peas, Smoked Almonds and Dill

This pasta is quick from start to finish and delicious down to the last bite.


Pasta with Peas, Smoked Almonds and Dill

original recipe HERE



Ingredients

  • 16 oz. small dry pasta (ditalini, macaroni)
  • 10 oz. fresh or frozen sweet peas
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped dill
  • 1 cup chopped green onion
  • 1 cup chopped smoked almonds
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 5 Tb. olive oil
  • 2 Tb. dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. Cooking the pasta according to the instructions on the package. Two minutes before it’s ready, add the peas to the boiling water.
  2. Once the peas have warmed through, drain the pasta and peas.
  3. Pour the pasta with peas into a large bowl and allow to cool to room temperature.
  4. Meanwhile, whisk the lemon juice, lemon zest, mustard, and oil together in a small bowl. Add 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper.
  5. Pour the dressing over the pasta and mix well.
  6. Add the dill and green onions and toss.
  7. When ready to serve, sprinkle with smoked almonds.
I made just a couple of very minor changes to this.  First, after the first time I made it I wanted a little more dressing so I just used an overflowing TBS measurement while making the dressing and it was perfect.  I also used about 2 TBS of dried dill instead of fresh once and didn't notice a difference in the flavor at all.  Oh and I barely salted and peppered it the second time and I liked it a little better.
