  1. Directions:
  2. Take the peas out of the freezer and allow to thaw. Prepare whole wheat pasta according to package directions.
  3. Meanwhile chop the tomatoes and add them along with the remainder of the ingredients, with the exception of the peas, to a blender. Blend until creamy and smooth. If you need to, add a splash of almond milk to get the blender started.
  4. Add peas to a strainer where you will dump pasta. When pasta is finished cooking pour it into the strainer, as you normally would, only now peas are “cooked” and mixed in.
