Grab Your Ingredients

This recipe only requires a handful of ingredients, and you might already have most of them at home. If not, you’ll need to go to the grocery store and get the following before making the meal:

  • Peas (fresh or frozen)
  • Short cut pasta
  • Grated parmesan cheese
  • Vegetable broth or water
  • Diced onion
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

Make the Pasta

Next, it’ll be time to make the spring pasta, which couldn’t be easier. First, get the diced onion nice and tender by sautéing it in olive oil. It should be good to go in about five minutes. After that, stir in the peas, followed by water or vegetable broth. Then wait until it starts boiling before stirring in the pasta.

As the pasta cooks, it will soak up some of the fluid, so add water or broth as needed until the noodles are done. Also, keep stirring the pasta as the noodles cook.

Once the noodles are done, toss in the grated cheese. Finally, stir it up, add some salt and pepper to taste, and serve it.

Finally, don’t be afraid to play around with the recipe by adding additional ingredients. Bacon and ham are both divine in this pasta.
