Pea and Parsley Pesto Pasta recipe

Servings: 3
Total Time: 25 minutes
Recipe by: Frankie


  • 1 1/2 cups frozen peas
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 TBSP unsalted butter
  • salt & pepper
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese plus extra for serving
  • 1/2 cup freshly chopped parsley
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 pound rigatoni pasta



  1. Add the peas, garlic, butter, 1/4 tsp salt, and 1/8 tsp pepper to a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring often, until peas are heated through and butter is melted, about 5 minutes.

  2. Add the cooked peas, Parmesan, and parsley to a food processor or blender and pulse until a paste is formed. Scrape the mixture into a large bowl and stir in the olive oil until thoroughly combined. Taste and season the pesto sauce with salt & pepper if necessary. Set pesto sauce aside.

  3. Cook your pasta al dente according to package directions. Drain the pasta reserving 1/2 cup of the pasta water.

  4. Add the cooked pasta to the bowl with the pesto and toss to coat the pasta. Add the reserved pasta water a little bit at a time until the sauce reaches your desired consistency.

  5. Serve pasta topped with a little extra freshly grated Parmesan.
