    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!

    Fresh, simple and delicious, this was so easy to prepare and enjoy. I loved the fresh mint with the peas, and the mustard gave a delightful tang to this simple Italian dish. A subtle hint of lemon was the perfect finishing touch. Thanks for sharing this lovely recipe, Sarah_Jayne, made for Veg*n Swap#17
