What You Get

Penne pasta 

Green garlic 

English peas or sugar snap peas (see note below) 

Pistachio pesto

Pea shoots 


What You’ll Need

Salt and freshly ground pepper

Olive oil

Grated Parmesan cheese (optional) 

Chile flakes (optional)


Makes 3 servings


Active Time: 15 minutes 

Total Time: 15 minutes  


Step 1

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add about half of the pasta and cook until al dente, about 10 minutes or 1 minute less than the package instructions. Drain the pasta, reserving ¼ cup of the pasta water.


Step 2

Meanwhile, thinly slice the white and pale green parts of the green garlic. Shell the English peas. (If using sugar snap peas or frozen, see note below.)  


Step 3

In a large sauté pan over medium heat, warm 1 tablespoon olive oil and 2 tablespoons water. Add the green garlic, peas, and a pinch of salt and simmer until the green garlic is translucent and the peas are bright green and tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat. 


Step 4

Add the pasta to the pan, along with the reserved pasta water and pesto, and toss to coat. Fold in the pea shoots last to wilt. Season to taste with salt.


Step 5

Heap the pasta on plates and sprinkle with Parmesan, if you have any, and chile flakes, if you want some heat. Drizzle with olive oil, grind with pepper, and serve warm.


Contains: milk, eggs, tree nuts, wheat. 

Note: Depending on seasonal availability, you may receive English peas, sugar snap peas, or frozen peas. If using sugar snap peas, remove the strings, if necessary, and cut the sugar snaps into halves or thirds. If using frozen, rinse 1 cup of frozen peas under cool water until thawed.
