- Prep: 10 mins
- Cook: 15 mins
- Serves: 6
- 1 pound of pasta, any shape you like
- 2 cups fresh or frozen peas, thawed
- 1/2 cup of your favorite pesto (store-bought or homemade)
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- Salt and pepper to taste
Cook the pasta according to the package instructions in a large pot of salted water until al dente.
In the last minute of cooking the pasta, add the peas to the pot and cook until they are tender.
Drain the pasta and peas, reserving about 1/2 cup of the pasta water.
Return the pasta and peas to the pot and add the pesto. Toss to coat the pasta and peas evenly with the pesto. If the mixture seems dry, add a few tablespoons of the reserved pasta water to loosen it up.
Add the grated Parmesan cheese and toss again to combine.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve the Four P Salad warm or at room temperature, garnished with additional Parmesan cheese if desired.
