I don't have any pictures for this recipe, but I thought I would post it anyway since I haven't posted anything for a while and I thought it was time for a summer recipe. This is my favorite summer salad! So get ready to eat!
Triple p salad
pasta, pea, pesto
2 c. uncooked elbow macaroni (8 oz)
1 c. fresh snow pea pods
1 c. fresh sugar snap peas
1 c. frozen baby sweet peas
(if you don't have the snow pea pods or the sugar snap peas, you can just use more of the frozen sweet peas, and it still tastes great!) I have done it both ways and they are both good. when you are on a budget the frozen peas keeps this recipe cheaper.
1/2 c. mayonnaise
1/3 c. refrigerated basil pesto ( I have found this at walmart or albertsons, or harmons.)
2 med. green onions, chopped
2 teaspons lemon juice
1 teaspoons salt.
1. cook macaroni as directed on package, adding pea pods sugar snap peas and baby sweep peas during the last 2-3 min. of cooking time. Drain then rinse with cold water until cool.
2. Meanwhile in a large bowl mix remaining ingrediedents.
3. add cooked macaroni with meas to mayo mixture, toss to coat. cover, refrigerate for 2 hours or till chilled before serving.
Perfect for Summer!!!!
