  • 16 ounces farfalle pasta (any other similar-sized pasta or gluten-free pasta is fine)
  • 2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 large cloves garlic (crushed, then minced)
  • 1 pound snow peas (or snap peas or a combination of both)
  • 1 pound baby potatoes (boiled and diced)
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 lemons (juice and zest)
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 cup parsley (chopped)

(Optional add-ins)

  • ½ cup walnuts (lightly toasted and coarsely chopped)
  • 2 tablespoon capers
  • ½ cup vegan parmesan cheese (for sprinkling)


  • Bring a large, salted pot of water to a boil and cook the pasta per package directions until al dente.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan. Add the garlic and saute until it turns lightly blonde, just a few seconds. Then add in the snap peas along with the red pepper flakes, ground black pepper and salt. Saute a couple of minutes until the snap peas are a little tender. You don't them to lose that juicy crunch so don't overcook them.
  • Stir in the potatoes, lemon zest and juice and then add the cooked and drained pasta with ½ cup of the pasta cooking water. Mix well. Check salt and pepper. Stir in the parsley and the optional add-ins, if using. Sprinkle on the cashew parmesan.
  • Serve hot, warm, at room temperature, or cold.
