Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more, to taste
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 pound green peas, fresh or frozen
  • 2 cups vegetable broth or water, plus more, to taste
  • 8 ounces shell-shaped pasta
  • salt, to taste
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, shredded, plus more, to taste, for serving
  • pepper, to taste

Directions

Step 1 –In a large pot over medium heat, add 1 tablespoon of the olive oil.

Step 2 –Add the onion to the hot oil and cook until the onion has softened and is turning translucent, about 5 minutes.

Step 3 –Add the peas to the hot oil and cook, while stirring frequently, until brightened, about 1 minute.

Step 4 –Add 2 cups of the vegetable broth to the pot and increase the heat to medium-high.

Step 5 –Bring the broth mixture to a boil.

Step 6 –Add the pasta and the salt to the broth mixture and stir to combine.

Step 7 –Reduce the heat to low and cover the pot with a lid.

Step 8 –Cook the pasta to al dente according to the package directions, stirring to ensure the water is absorbed and the pasta does not stick to the bottom. If the broth mixture begins to look too dry, gradually add the extra vegetable broth as needed.
