What to do

  • 1. In large pot, boil water, add salt and olive oil and then add pasta. Cook according to package instructions.

  • 2. In a smaller pot, bring ¾ cups of water to a boil, add frozen peas, cook for approximately 2 minutes and strain immediately. Run cold water over strainer for 30 seconds to keep peas fresh and crunchy.

  • 3. Once the pasta has cooked al dente, remove from heat, strain and return pasta to the pot.

  • 4. Stir through olive tapenade. Toss to coat and add extra tapenade if desired.

  • 5. Add peas, fresh basil leaves and top with micro greens.

  • 6. Serve warm or allow to cool to room temperature, or store in an air tight container in the fridge.
