This is an on-the-fly post and a quick snapshot before devoured as I was at my sister’s house visiting her and her newborn and had brought lunch ingredients.
The night before I quickly made a garlic scape pesto which was highly improvised with just garlic scapes, sunflower seeds, nutritional yeast, olive oil, and some salt. I had it with some sourdough bread and it was super spicy!
This dish has:
Spaghetti noodles: found in bulk at WinCo
Peas: picked from my garden
Garlic scape pesto: from the garden + bulk ingredients
To make pasta:
Boil water and salt and cook spaghetti, adding in peas (shelled peas or snap peas with shell) in the last minute.
Reserve a couple cups of pasta water.
Add in 3/4 cup of pesto into pasta water and stir to combine.
Put pasta back into pot, pan, or bowl then top with the pesto sauce.
Top this off with about 1/4 cup or fresh mint leaves.
Peace and love,
