Pappardelle with Leeks, Sugar Snap Peas, and Lemon
The delicate flavor of leeks provides the perfect flavor base for a spring vegetable pasta. A generous amount of fresh lemon zest and black pepper elevates the dish.
Work with whatever is in your crisper: You can substitute asparagus or green beans for the sugar snap peas. Even frozen peas will do.
Make your pasta pot work overtime: Before adding the noodles, blanch your crunchy vegetables in the boiling salted water.
