Feta and Spring Pea Pasta

October 11th, 2010

I need some good vegetarian recipes that are easy enough for me to make on weeknights. Does anyone have any suggestions? This was my summer go-to meal. It””s pretty yummy.

Can be served cold or warm:

6 servings of Penne pasta
6 oz. crumbled feta
1/4 # fresh spring peas, rinsed, ends cut off, then loosely chopped
1/3 c. chopped mint
zest of half a lemon
1/3 c. olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Bring water to a boil, blanche peas. Remove peas with a slotted spoon, and rinse in cold water. Put pasta in boiling water (just used for the peas), cook to package instructions. Drain and rinse. Combine all ingredients in bowl.

    I just found this website http://www.kitchenist.com/
    She seems to primarily be vegetarian, not vegan since she uses eggs, cream etc. Some of the recipes look easy enough for weekday cooking. I haven”t tried any yet.
    Good Luck.

    This is one of my favorite go-to recipes. I usually add kale, and sometimes I serve it over brown rice to get a complete protein.

    this is a super good fall pasta recipe. There are a lot of ingredients, but it comes together quickly:

    mmm that recipe sounds delicious.
    i really like vegan yum yum, and she has a phone app, which makes it really convenient for following a recipe.

    also, I think giada”s ”tuscan salad” -http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/giada-de-laurentiis/tuscan-salad-recipe/index.html is hearty enough for a main meal.

    and my friend makes this delicious, simple pasta dish with orzo, arugula, feta, cranberries, and pine nuts (not sure about the dressing part, though…) : )
