Flashback to kindergarten: Katie, Lion King backpack in hand and hair all done up in a French braid, runs to the 1990 Volvo Station wagon after a half day of school. She goes with her mom to Paul's Bakery to get her favorite sprinkle doughnut and then comes home to eat her signature lunch- noodles and peas with butter and salt- before taking a nap while watching the Beauty and the Beast with her mom :)
Flashnow: an updated, more gourmet version of my favorite noodles and peas. Still noodles, although penne instead of egg. Still peas, although in a pesto variation and served with tuna instead of butter and salt. Delicious then, delicious now.
2 cups cooked peas (I just thaw out frozen one and then pop them in the microwave)
3 tbs. chopped fresh mint leaves
1/4 cup pine nuts
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
salt & pepper to taste
