spring pea ditalini pasta salad

Updated: Apr 3, 2023

Who else is desperately ready for spring? Even though it still feels like winter on the east coast I can't wait to create some delicious springtime meals! What better way to kick off the first week of spring than with a pasta salad dish that's light and refreshing. Made with ditalini pasta, peas, asparagus, burrata, and topped with basil and lemon zest. This recipe takes less than 30 mins to make and can be eaten warm or cold.

Hope you love it! xo
