1 jar your favourite pesto (homemade or bought)

Cook the pasta in a large pot of salted boiling water according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.
In a food processor, combine fresh pesto, mint leaves, 1/2 cup of thawed peas and garlic. Pulse until the mixture is finely chopped. With the food processor running, slowly add the olive oil and lemon juice and process until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Season the pea pesto with salt and black pepper to taste.
In a large bowl, toss the cooked pasta with the pea pesto until well coated. Add remaining whole peas. Add vegan Persian Feta over the top of the pasta, and garnish with mint leaves. Serve immediately!

The Persian Feta adds a tangy and creamy touch that perfectly complements the pesto flavours. Sits well in the fridge for a few days & can be served as a cold salad or a warm meal.
