I really do not want to complain. But. Friends, where is the spring please? In a few days is already Easter and here in Kiel, the weather looks like we are stuck in the dead of winter. Thick gray soup in front of the window and a view of the thermometer (ok, actually I googled) reveals relaxed two degrees outside temperature. No, my dears, that’s not possible.
That’s why today I brought us a spring-like pasta salad, with which we can hopefully lure the old Schlawiner out of his hiding place. Incidentally, while I type this I notice that I have never put out the word Schlawiner. Well, spring, the time of the new beginning. Ok, I definitely digress.
So, let’s talk about the most delicious 20-minute arugula pea pasta salad with yoghurt-dill sauce . Wonderfully light and lemony and creamy and peppered with spicy arugula and sweet vomit. Ready? Let’s do this!
Are you really into pasta salad like that? I could really eat that every day! Tzatziki Pasta Salad , 20-minute Caprese Pasta Salad or the delicious Bruschetta Pasta Salad , I love them all. What has been missing in my collection so far, was a wonderfully light spring salad.
Ingredients that make this pasta salad wonderfully spring-like:
- Spicy rocket.
- Lots of freshly squeezed lemon juice.
- Juicy fusilli noodles.
- Greek yogurt.
Let it melt on your tongue. Creamy yoghurt-dill dressing with a decent citrus kick nestles around each and every niddle. There are sweet peas and flavorful rocket, which perfectly balanced the individual ingredients.
Huge spring love.
For this pasta salad you only need 8 ingredients and 30 minutes time !
Simple pasta salad with rocket and peas – How it works
For the 20-minute arugula pea pasta salad with yoghurt-dill sauce, you first cook the al dente noodles. Meanwhile mix Greek yogurt, olive oil, a little bit of noodle water, lemon juice and dill for the dressing and taste the sauce with salt and pepper. Now you wash the salad and give the peas very briefly to the boiling noodles, before you pour everything and mix with the sauce and rocket. Now you just have to taste and enjoy the whole thing once more.

Pasta Cooking Water
- Salt and Pepper
[ 19459001] Cook pasta according to package instructions al dente. In the meantime mix Greek yogurt, olive oil, pasta water, lemon juice and dill. Season well with salt and pepper. Wash the rocket and spin dry.
Put the peas in the pot one minute before the end of the noodle cooking. Drain everything and let cool briefly. Mix with the sauce and rocket and season to taste again.
The pasta salad absorbs a lot of sauce over time. Should he not be eaten right away, I would make the 1 1/2 times the amount of sauce.
