While pasta is cooking blanch frozen peas in boiling water for 1-2 minutes.
Then add 2 cups of peas, garlic, mint, lemon zest, lemon juice, pine nuts, and extra virgin olive oil in a food processor or blender until smooth.
Add parmesan and blend until smooth and add salt and pepper to your liking.
Add 1 cup of leftover peas to the pesto, but do not blend.
