Here's what happens when lifestyle radio hosts have no radio job – they cook…I mean, I cook.
Here's the beauty of this pasta. It's cheap, it's easy, and you can make it in the middle of the day. Also meat free, fiber rich, heart healthy and vitamin C centric. Mostly this pasta with sugar snap peas and feta tastes darn good and is assembled in about 15 minutes.
No more than 8 ounces of pasta (that's only 1/2 bag!)
1 bag sugar snap peas, strings removed from spine if tough
1 shallot, 2 if small, or another onion like veg chopped fine
1 tablespoon olive oil
Pepper if desired
1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese
**fresh herbs would probably be a great addition if you have them, mint in particular
Get salted pasta water started. When you add pasta to the water, heat large skillet on medium heat. Add olive oil to the pan. When it's hot, add shallot and a sprinkle of salt, cook 2-3 minutes, but dont let it burn. stir and/or lower heat if necessary. Add sugar snap peas. Toss for a minute or two, then add 1/4 cup of water from pasta pot. Slap a lid on it for 3-5 minutes, depending on desired tenderness. Save 1/2 cup more of pasta water. Drain pasta and add to skillet. Add enough pasta water to make “sauce”. Combine feta.
