Ingredients

  • 100 g peas
  • 250 g pasta
  • 50 ml vegetable oil
  • 1 dessertspoon balsamic vinegar
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • fresh herbs if you grow them or have them already

Instructions

  • Cook and drain the pasta.
  • Make a dressing with the garlic, oil and vinegar.
  • Combine the dressing with the pasta and add the frozen peas. The warmth of the pasta will be enough to cook the peas, and they will cool the pasta to room temperature.
  • Serve with 2 slices per person of homemade bread to mop up the juices.
