Sugar Snap Pea and Lemon Pasta

With minimal ingredients and basically zero prep, our garlic and lemon pasta makes the perfect base for those farmers market sugar snap peas. To bring out their beautiful vibrant green color and keep them crunchy yet tender, we’ve steamed the peas. We’ve also used salted butter and Parmesan cheese in place of added kosher salt. For a higher protein option, try pairing it with our Salmon Scampi or Roasted Shrimp Cocktail.
