Mint & Pea Pasta

Nothing is better than a comforting, warm bowl of pasta on a cold winter evening. I love this recipe because it is both dairy and gluten free. The POW pasta, which is made from red lentils – is also full of protein. The mint and lemon flavors are so tasty with the pasta. I am all about efficiency in the kitchen, and love that I can make this in under twenty minutes AND have leftovers!
