English peas pasta with lemon and mint

As the weather heats up, our suppers are becoming lighter. This English peas pasta recipe is brightened with hints of mint and lemon. For summer we want refreshing so we buy fresh on the herbs, pasta and peas. However, we often call on this ’emergency’ recipe and substitute with frozen peas and dried pasta as we have these ingredients in our pantry, most times. If we don’t have fresh mint, we just omit it from the recipe as the dried version pales in comparison. Fresh English peas give an extra bouncy pop than frozen. English peas come in big pods that are easy for the Itty Bitty Foodies to shell. Even 2 year old Googie gets into the prep work. Aside from a quick an great tasting meal, it’s also fun for the whole family to make this English peas pasta with lemon and mint.
