Quick Creamy Penne

with PIne Nuts and Peas

The simplest way to create a meal that’s fast and easy but still tasty is by focusing on a few thoughtfully paired powerhouse ingredients. In this case, that’s mint for fresh herbiness, peas for a touch of sweet green, and pine nuts for a hint of buttery flavor and crunch. When tossed into this quick, creamy pasta, they create contrasts and combos that feel new with each bite.

Large Pot
Large Pan



Wash and dry all produce. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Pick mint leaves from stems; discard stems. Roughly chop leaves. Mince or grate garlic.

Toast Pine Nuts

Heat a large, empty pan over medium-low heat. Add pine nuts and toast, tossing frequently, until lightly browned and fragrant, 2-3 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.

Boil Pasta and Peas

Once water is boiling, add penne to pot. Cook, stirring occasionally, until just shy of al dente, about 7 minutes. Add peas to pot and continue cooking until peas are tender and penne is al dente, 2-3 minutes more. Carefully scoop out and reserve ½ cup pasta cooking water, then drain.

Cook Garlic

Heat a drizzle of olive oil in pan used for pine nuts over medium heat. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

Toss Pasta

Stir penne, peas, sour cream, stock concentrate, half the Parmesan, and ¼ cup pasta cooking water into pan. Gently toss over medium heat until a thick, creamy sauce forms, 3-4 minutes. (TIP: Add another splash or two of pasta cooking water if sauce seems dry.) Season with salt and pepper.

Plate and Serve

Divide penne mixture between plates. Sprinkle with mint (to taste), pine nuts, and remaining Parmesan.
