Snap Pea and Penne Pasta with Fresh Pesto
Garden fresh is the theme at Well on Wheels this week. I have a bunch of peas vining up a trellis in my garden and I picked a handful the other day, so I decided they'd be the feature item on my lunch menu. It also helped that my basil plant is bushy and ready to be trimmed and transformed into pesto.
Any time you're looking for a quick alternative to ubiquitous marinara on your pasta, pesto can't be beat. It's light, bright, garlicky and good. How can you possibly go wrong with that combination on a warm summer afternoon?
