Author Notes: Well...maybe a pan, but pea shoots, garden peas and sugar snaps all meet with pasta and parmesan. And what better than mint with peas?inpatskitchen

Serves: 4 to 6

  • 16 ounces dry linguini
  • Enough chicken or vegetable broth to cook the linguini
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
