Linguine with Pea Pesto $2.41

We bring you yet another non traditional pesto dish. This time the pesto is green in color, but once again there is no basil in sight. This recipe is inspired by Martha Stewart herself. While I was surfing the web looking for recipes with peas, I stumbled upon this gem, and it looked good, and easy and definitely cheap, so we gave it a shot. The results were great! leaving half the peas whole was a great idea!
Heres what you need:
1 lb frozen peas $ 1.09
8 oz pasta(any kind) .50
1/4 cup almonds.40
2 tablespoons olive oil .20
2 garlic cloves .20
pepper .02

Boil noodles according to instruction
in food processor or blender pour 1/2 lb peas
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves
1/4 cup almonds
dash of salt and pepper
when noodles are done boiling, drain and pour 1/4 cup pasta water in food processor with pea pesto
blend again
remove and in a large skillet mix in pasta, pesto, remaining olive oil and peas
saute all together for a few minutes
