It feels like Spring has long passed. I find hints of her here and there, hiding behind the summer heat. There she is: a cool breeze at night, Sunday rain showers, tulips at the market, and these North Carolina peas. I bought them on the last day of May, an appropriate way to say goodbye to Spring and hello to Summer, I thought. Making a Spring pasta isn't difficult. Fresh herbs are a must, but beyond that you can throw anything into your pot.
