Recipe Box: Pasta Salad with Peas, Lemon and Goat Cheese

pasta and peas Recipe Box: Pasta Salad with Peas, Lemon and Goat Cheese - EAT LOVE SAVOR International luxury lifestyle magazine, bookazines & luxury communitySummer is the season for brightly colored fresh food (well any season is) but for some reason, this season makes me crave it more.

Fresh, crisp, sweet, savory, plates bursting with colors and incredible flavors of the season. Pasta salads are a favorite, both for their hunger satisfying ability and for getting creative in the kitchen. They are versatile to prepare, what with the vast number to the types of pasta and the great vegetables (and even fruits) you can add to create something spectacular. Finish it off with a coarsely chopped parsley for extra summery-ness, a great contrasting color and added freshness to the dish. Here is a recipe, previously unpublished, from my collection of recipes I’ve developed.
