Farfalle Pasta Salad with Sweet Peas and Dill


This pasta salad is the perfect accompaniment to any and every summer meal.  It is different from the pasta salads you see everywhere and has a huge addicting quality making people want to have more and more. This is my sister's recipe and I have absolutely fallen in love with it.  I always hope for leftovers because I can never get enough!  Even though we tend to have it for family parties as a side dish, this would make a wonderful light dinner as is or with some grilled chicken or tuna tossed in.  Seriously, so, so, so good!  You will LOVE it, trust me.


Farfalle Pasta Salad with Sweet Peas and Dill

1 (16-oz) box Farfalle Pasta (any thick noodle would work well, but these bow ties look so pretty!)
1 cup sweet peas
1-1.5 cups)  mayo
dijon mustard
lots of fresh dill, chopped
kosher salt and ground black pepper to taste

Cook pasta according to directions on box.  Allow to cool.  Combine the peas with the pasta and add enough mayo to coat, but not so much to make it to be super saucy.  This isn't a sloppy, saucy, mayo-rich salad, just enough for great flavor and to evenly coat.  Add a good squeeze of dijon, about 2 tablespoons or so and stir. Add a ton of chopped dill, and season to taste with salt and a bit of ground black pepper and stir to throughly combine. Allow to chill before serving.
