Bowties with Peas and Basil

  • 8 oz dried bowtie pasta
  • few handfuls snap peas
  • handful basil leaves
  • lemon
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper

In a large pot, cook bowties according to package directions.  Trim and remove strings from snap peas, then slice each into 3-4 bite-sized pieces.  Add the peas to the pasta during the last 1-2 minutes of cooking.  Drain in a colander.  Combine pasta, peas, olive oil, chopped basil, juice of half the lemon, and salt and pepper to taste.  Serve hot or cold.
