Creamy Pasta with Peas and Basil


1 lb of pasta- shells are fun because the peas hide inside

1 bunch pearl onions, tops and roots removed and bulbs scrubbed

2 cups peas- either snap peas, shelled peas, or a blend of both.

1 ¼ c cream

2 T lemon juice

salt and pepper

¼ c finely chopped basil, or a blend of basil and parsley


1Boil the pasta in a large amount of water. When the pasta is a few minutes from tender, drop in the pearl onions.

2 Just before draining the pasta and onions, drop in the peas. Drain immediately.

3 Meanwhile, simmer the cream in a skillet. When reduced slightly, add the lemon juice, seasonings, and herbs.

4 Combine with the drained pasta and serve with cheese and bread.
