Pasta, Pesto, and Peas

One of the appeals of Barefoot Bloggers is that we only have to cook the selections twice a month. Normally, I have time in my schedule to participate in weekly events, but this past week was a rare exception. I had a deadline for a massive project causing me to work 10-15 hour days, daily, for the last two weeks. That meant no weekends, no groceries, no life. I missed one event this week, but luckily, I had fixed the Pasta, Pesto, and Peas before my life disappeared.

This is a delicious and easy salad to prepare. I usually have all the ingredients on hand in my pantry anyway, and happily, this time was no exception. I was going to make this again for a Board Meeting potluck a few days ago, but, as I mentioned above, work preempted that. I will, however, put this recipe on the list of potluck-potential dishes so I’m prepared for the next occasion.

The salad was a great complement to some home-baked sourdough whole wheat bread.

Pasta, Pesto, and Peas was chosen by Elizabeth of Ugg Smell Food.
