Quick Pea Pasta Salad
Why I Love This Recipe
FEATURING: Peas, cherry tomatoes, green onions, garlic scapes (or garlic), zucchini (or pattypan or cucumber), rabiole (or kohlrabi or radish) and basil.
This is a quick go-to meal we love to make with the kids or when we don't have much time! We often use leftover pasta from a previous meal to make this meal prep even faster!
