Description

This spring pea pesto is so easy, light and flavorful! Best of all, it is on the table in 30 minutes for a quick, delicious pasta dinner.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Fusilli Pasta
  • Salt As Needed
  • 1 bag (13 Oz. Size) Frozen Peas, Thawed
  • ½ cups Almonds
  • ½ cups Freshly Grated Pecorino Romano Cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon Dill
  • ½  Lemon, Zested
  • ½ cups Olive Oil
  • 3 Tablespoons Milk
  • 8 ounces, weight Cremini Mushrooms, Thinly Sliced
  • 1 pinch Dried Onion
  • 1 pinch Crushed Red Pepper

Preparation

First, get a large pot of water on the stove and bring it to a boil. When it is boiling, salt it generously. Cook the fusilli until it is tender for about 8 minutes. Meanwhile, as the water comes to a boil and the pasta cooks, make the sauce. Set up a food processor and combine the peas, almonds, cheese, dill and lemon zest in its bowl. Pulse it until it becomes a thick puree. Then run the processor while you slowly pour in the oil and milk until it becomes a gorgeous, thick pesto sauce. Set it aside.

Get a skillet on to the stove and heat a dash of olive oil in it over medium high heat. Cook the mushrooms in it for a few minutes to let them soften and develop color. While they cook season them with a pinch of salt, the dried onion and the crushed red pepper. Pour the pesto sauce into the pan and stir it with the mushrooms. Let it simmer together for a minute, then scoop a 1/4 cup of the pasta cooking water into the pan as well to loosen everything and give more starchy, salty flavor. The pasta should be done at this point. Drain it and toss it in the skillet with the sauce and mushrooms. Take the pan off of the heat and serve immediately!
