Healthy and tasty summer pasta with fresh peas and cherry tomatoes. Serve it warm or cold as a pasta salad.


  • 10 oz pasta of your choice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt for boiling pasta
  • 1 cup fresh peas
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Boil water in a large skillet, sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon salt and toss in pasta. Drop 1 tablespoon olive oil in it and cook for 7 minutes. Drain, leaving about 1/4 cup of the water.
  2. Boil water in the same skillet for peas this time. Drop the peas in the boiling water and cook until tender but still a bit firm, for about 5-10 minutes. Drain and transfer into very cold water. Drain, set aside.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  4. Add the halved cherry tomatoes, put a lid on the skillet and let the tomatoes get a little tender for about 5 minutes stirring a few times.
  5. Season it with salt and black pepper.
  6. Toss in pasta, peas and 1/4 cup water in which you cook pasta. Stir and take it from heat.
  7. Serve warm or cold.
