Pasta That Uses the Most Efficient Vegetable
Here's a smart way to cut down on prep: Use veggies that are already small and don't require lots of chopping. Peas are the perfect example, which this unexpected recipe uses to great effect, as the bright green veggies bring a pop of color and flavor to fettuccine tossed in a butter-lemon-Parmesan sauce. Basil, fresh radishes and toasted walnuts are the other elements of this beautiful, multi-layered dish, which happens to be vegetarian but still has plenty of heft, thanks to the nuts and cheese.
