Pour the frozen peas into your colander while the pasta is cooking. When the pasta is ready, pour it in over the peas. The heat will defrost them without overcooking! Rinse, as usual.
In a large bowl, toss the pasta and peas with the carrots, onion, and pasta salad dressing.
Chill until you’re ready to serve.
Make the Avocado Lime-Basil Aioli Dressing
Combine all of the dressing ingredients in your blender, and puree until completely smooth.
You can use the Avocado-Lime Basil Aioli on other foods too. It's a great sandwich spread in place of plain mayo, lovely on top of your favorite comfort bowl and delicious on tacos! The recipe above yields about 1 1/2 cups of the sauce.
