Pea-licious Pasta

Peas are divine.
I often crave their sweet loveliness and the combinations of veggies and pasta are endless! Feel free to change it up with any veggie that you love!

Everyone from tots to adults will love this dish.


1 lb. pasta

2.5 tbsp. butter

3 tbsp. olive oil

1 leek thinly sliced

1 c. diced baby carrots

½ tsp. sugar

1 diced zucchini

½ c. fresh chopped green beans

1 ¼ c. frozen sweet peas

¼ c. fresh chopped parsley

Pint of chopped small sweet tomatoes




Put on the water to boil for the pasta.

Melt the butter with the oil until it sizzles.

Toss in the leek and carrots with the sugar and sautée it for about 5 minutes over medium heat.

You can put the pasta in the boiling water now.

Next, stir in the zucchini, green beans, peas, salt and pepper and cover it with a lid for 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally. (I did it for 8 minutes because I wanted the vegetables a little softer for our son, Z.)

Stir in the parsley and tomatoes.

Toss the veggie mixture into the pasta and serve.

I suggest serving it with some warm garlic bread.
