Prep time: 15 min | Cook time: 10 min | Total time: 25 min | 4 Servings


8 oz

rotini pasta

10 oz

Earthbound Farm Organic Frozen Green Peas (1 package)

3 Tbsp

good-quality extra-virgin olive oil

4 Tbsp

fresh lemon juice

⅓ cup

crumbled feta cheese

⅓ cup

chopped fresh basil

⅓ cup

Kalamata olives (pitted and sliced)

1 ½ cups

Earthbound Farm Organic Cherry or Grape Tomatoes (cut in half)


Earthbound Farm Organic Green Onions (sliced, including at least 2 inches of the green tops)

Salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)


Cook the pasta as directed on the package. Stir in the peas during the last 1-1/2 to 2 minutes of cooking. Drain and rinse in cold water to stop the cooking process. Transfer to a salad bowl.

Add the olive oil and lemon juice, and toss well. Stir in the feta, basil, olives, tomatoes and onions. Toss to combine and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Fresh Variation: Substitute 2 cups of fresh peas for the frozen. The cooking time remains the same.
