Author's Notes

The pea pesto will keep in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. The final result is a thick pesto that is great for bread, and just olive oil to reach your desired consistency for pizza or pasta.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
While you prepare the pea and pistachio pesto, bring your pasta water to a boil & cook the Spaghetti (1 lb) until al dente (follow package directions).
Step 2
Begin by blanching the Green Peas (3 cups) in boiling water for 2 minutes and then moving to them to an ice bath to chill & remove the peas from the water once chilled.
Step 3
Add the chilled peas, Unsalted Pistachios (1/4 cup) , Fresh Mint Leaves (1/4 cup) , Garlic (1 clove) , Olive Oil (1/3 cup) , 1 Tbsp of juice and 1 tsp zest of the Lemon (1) , and Parmesan Cheese (1/4 cup) . Pulse in the food processor until ingredients are well combined, but not smooth - you want the pesto to have a bit of texture.
Step 4
Taste the pesto for seasoning, add Salt (to taste) and Ground Black Pepper (to taste) as necessary. Set it aside.
Step 5
Once the pasta is done, reserve 1 cup of the pasta water and add the cooked spaghetti to a large saucepan along with 2 cups of the prepared pea and pistachio pesto and the 1 cup of reserved pasta water.
Step 6
Cook over medium heat, continuously stirring until a creamy texture is achieved. This usually takes about 5 minutes.
Step 7
Portion the pasta between four plates. Top each plate of pasta with a ball of Burrata Cheese (4) , (I like to break the burrata open a bit), drizzle with Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (to taste) , sprinkle with additional lemon zest and serve!
