Pea Pesto


  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Toss tomatoes and sliced garlic in olive oil, plus a shake of salt and pepper. Roast them on a baking sheet for 15 minutes, tossing once halfway through.
  2. While tomatoes are in the oven, prepare the pesto. Add peas, basil, lemon juice, garlic, pine nuts, and salt to a food processor. Pulse several times until well combined. Add parmesan cheese and pulse a few times more to combine. Slowly drizzle in olive oil while blending, until desired consistency is reached. You may need to scrape down the edges of the bowl a few times.
  3. Prepare pasta according to package instructions. Reserve 1/2 cup of pasta water, then drain.
  4. Add a heaping 1/2 cup of pesto to a small bowl and whisk with 3-4 tbsp pasta water to thin out. Then, toss the pasta and roasted tomatoes in the pesto.
  5. Serve immediately.
