One of my husband’s favorite foods, while growing up, was Peas and Shells. It is a quick simple recipe, that is easy to make. My mother-in-law had given us a homemade book of her recipes and I decided to make this one. Enjoy!
1/2 lbs of small pasta shells
1 (8 oz) can of tomato sauce
1 cup of water
1 (10 oz) box of frozen peas (Or zucchini, chopped into bite sized pieces)
1 small onion, chopped
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1/2 tablespoon of fresh basil (or 1/4 teaspoon dried basil)
salt, to taste
- Saute onions with olive oil until onions are translucent.
- Pour onions, tomato sauce, water and fresh basil into a blender and blend until smooth. If you want chunky sauce, omit this step
- Pour sauce back into the pot and add peas and shells.
- Cook until shells are cooked.
- Add salt to taste
