Summer Pasta With Peas & Mint

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Sarah_Jayne

This recipe sounds fresh and healthy and an nice alternative to tomato sauce covered pasta. This recipe was first published in the July 2006 issue of BBC Good Food Magazine. You could toss some thick slices of ham into it if you wanted meat in the meal.

This pasta dish was delicious and very easy to make! I love the flavors of the mint, mustard and peas...a nice change from tomato-based sauce. I will definately make this again!
