Bowties with Sugar Snap Peas, Lemon, and Ricotta
This warm weather pasta salad recipe from Smitten Kitchen is a great way to incorporate those summery, crunchy, green veggies into your life. Just add a bit of ricotta, fresh lemon juice and olive oil, and you have yourself the perfect appetizer, entree or potluck dish.
As sugar snap season comes and goes all to quickly for my addicted tastes, consider this a template for any green vegetable — segments of asparagus, green beans, snow pea pods, or whole sweet peas — that you think might enjoy some lemon/ricotta/parmesan/salt/pepper treatment.
