How to prepare

Cook the pasta in plenty of water al dente. Meanwhile, in a frying pan with a little oil, sauté the finely chopped onion for two minutes, add the frozen peas and sauté for about three minutes more. Put half the peas, basil leaves to taste, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper, lemon juice and enough olive oil to emulsify the sauce in a  blender until well combined. 

Drain the pasta and pour in the pot the rest of the peas and the poached onion, sauté the pasta so that everything mixes well. Add two to three tablespoons of pea pesto and mix well and serve while the pasta is warm. Garnish with some toasted pine nuts. Serve the rest of the sauce separately.
