POSTED April 30, 2019

Spring is here and one of our favorite vegetables is finally back in season—creamy, bright green peas. Not only do they offer a burst of sweetness that perfectly complements many pasta dishes, peas are easy to cook and they add important health benefits to every bite. Try these 5 springtime pea and pasta recipes for a burst of seasonal flavor.

Lush potato gnocchi are accented with fresh citrus, sweet peas and baby spinach for a hearty, flavorful meal. Plus, this gnocchi dish is as easy to prepare as it is delicious…it’s a win-win situation!

This recipe combines salty prosciutto and young sweet peas with a delicate garlic cream sauce. Put it all atop a bed of our pillowy Potato Gnocchi for a rich pasta dish that celebrates spring’s best flavors.

These “little ears” perfectly scoop mouthfuls of tender green peas and crispy pancetta in each bite. Want something a little lighter? You can substitute ricotta in place of the cream for fewer calories and less fat without sacrificing the comforting creamy texture.

This pasta dish features our favorite pastina, the small but mighty orzo. Combine cooked orzo with earthy truffled mushrooms, creamy sweet peas, and salty cheeses for an ooey-gooey baked pasta dish that’s sure to please the entire family.
