Pasta with Spring Pea Pesto
Italians take peas, the wonderfully flavorful spring vegetable, and puree them to create the base of a pasta sauce. Pea’s pleasant sweetness is accented with creamy ricotta with a pop of aromatic tang from nutmeg and mint. A totally nut-free pesto, that is ready in minutes, sophisticated, yet simple. It’s healthful, satisfying, and very pretty on the plate: exactly what you’d expect from today’s Italy.
