Snap Pea Orecchiette

It’s officially spring! Even though the weather is full snow in Aspen, Zelda and I decided to kick off the season with delicious Snap Pea Orecchiette. This recipe is super easy to make and takes under 30 minutes. We love fresh asparagus, but sometimes chopping can be a little daunting. We’ll let you in on a little secret, we skipped the knife and used scissors instead. It goes so much faster and is one of our all-time favorite kitchen hacks! This pasta has all our favorite spring ingredients and it’s easy to reheat the next day. What is your go-to kitchen hack? Tell us in the comments below.
