Penne with Pesto and Peas
As I mentioned yesterday , I love changing things up when it comes to traditional menus and this springy pesto pasta salad is just the thing to brighten up any table spread full of good food. Sent to me by a friend, Liz K. Brightened with the zing of fresh lemon juice, the entire mixture is tossed with the toothsome pasta and topped with tender peas, crunchy pine nuts and salty Parmesan. Drain and toss into a bowl with the olive oil. Cool to room temperature, tossing every once in a while to prevent the noodles from sticking to each other as they cool. In a food processor or blender, puree the pesto, spinach, and lemon juice.
For weeks now my darling husband has been eyeing my basil plants. He wiggles his eyebrows suggestively and whispers that magic word: "pesto. I took a scissors to my beloved basil. A little bit of time in the kitchen with industrious sounds of whirring and grating and then there he was, offering me a spoon with a touch brilliant green pesto. I like pesto just fine, but this was a revelation.
In one of her early books, Ina Garten of the Barefoot Contessa fame, has a recipe for pasta with pesto and peas. To this day, I am holding out for an invitation to spend the day cooking with her in the Hamptons.

What a fabulous meal! This was my first time making homemade pesto and the smell of it brought me back to my childhood and images of my grandfather tending to his garden. This was a great break from our usual dinners and something that I will definitely make more often. I adapted this recipe a bit to suit what I could find in the store and my allergies. First things first, my allergies. I am allergic to all nuts, so I had to venture out and make my own pesto sans the nuts.
