Sweet Pea and Lemon Pesto
 
Description

There's no doubt that basil stands as queen of the pesto kingdom, but when we slipped these sweet green gems in its place, well, let's just say the basil was a little pea-green with envy. Vibrant, fresh and brightly flavored, this pesto is perfect as a spread for crostini or baguette, spread on cooked fish or tossed with pasta.

 
Ingredients

1 cup fresh or frozen peas
1 clove garlic
1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp fine lemon zest
3 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper

 
Instructions


Pulse peas, garlic, Parmesan, lemon juice and zest in a food processor. With machine running, slowly drizzle in olive oil until well combined. Season generously with salt and pepper. Serve as a spread, on grilled fish, or over your choice of hot pasta.
