Pesto Pea Pasta

Prep time: 20 min

Cook time 15 min

Servings: 6


  • 16 oz of your favorite pasta

  • 1 cup peas 

Pesto pea sauce:

  • 4 cups fresh basil

  • 1 tbsp minced garlic 

  • 1/4 cup walnuts 

  • 1 small lemon, juice 

  • 1/8 cup pepita seeds

  • 3/4 cup peas 

  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast 

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 1/4 cup plain coconut yogurt 

  • 1/4 cup water 

  • Salt and pepper to taste 

You will need: blender, large pot, drainer 


  1. Fill pot about halfway with water and put on high heat until it begins to boil. Add pasta and turn down to a simmer. Cook for about 9-12 minutes depending on instructions on box. 

  2. While pasta is cooking add all the other ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.

  3. Drain pasta. Add pesto sauce to pot on low heat. Add pasta to sauce and mix well until evenly coated with sauce. I like to add about 1 cup whole peas after for more protein/texture
