Spinach-Peas pasta recipe / peasto pasta 

One of the foodie friend started this “Let’s get back to cooking” group under Google Spaces and her hubby shared this falafel recipe in the group. I must say he has a vey good taste to filter down the recipes for us foodies in the group. 😛😁 I still haven’t tried the whole recipe but was tempted to try it over the weekend. Just to respect my own feelings, I tried the sauce with the twist that works for my family. Thanks ZanPan, this post is dedicated to you guys. Basically I just made the Basil pesto sauce without Basil.


Ingredients:

1 cup wheat pasta

3 tbsp fresh green peas

3 tbsp fresh spinach

1 tbsp mozarella cheese, 1 tbsp blue cheese sauce(you can also use cube cheese ), 1 tbsp feta cheese, 1 tbsp avocado olive oil( you can use any cooking oil), salt and pepper per taste, 2 cloves fresh garlic, 1.5 tbsp dried basil leaves( optional) , 1 handful of cilantro leaves.

how-to:

1. First cook pasta of your choice per direction on the box. Keep the water from pasta.


2. If you have fresh peas, put spinach leaves and peas in hot water from pasta for 5 minutes.


3. Now in your mixer, add peas, spinach, cilantro, all 3 cheeses, salt, pepper, garlic, oil and half avocado if you want it creamy. I did not add though.


4. Your pasta sauce is ready, just add any veggies you like ( cucumber, Cherry tomatoes, olives, onions, bell pepper) in your pasta and mix well with sauce. You can sprinkle some Parmesan and blue cheese to serve.

It’s the best way to get the veggies in toddler’s system. I did not add any vegetables as I wanted the quick version but I still got spinach and peas in the sauce. Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope you have fun cooking quick recipes. The falafel recipe I was talking about can be found here.
