This is one of my favorite QuickBites. I just love the pop of the peas combined with the refreshing flavor of the mint and the creamy cottage cheese. This dish works especially well in the Spring, but it's so easy to make that I find myself going to it all year round!
  Pasta shells 1 Pound
  Frozen peas 10 Ounce
  Low fat cottage cheese 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Fresh mint 1 Cup (16 tbs), chopped
  Extra virgin olive oil 2 Tablespoon
  Salt To Taste

1) Allow peas to thaw a bit on your counter while you
prep the rest of the dish.
2) Cook pasta according to package. Drain them over
your peas to allow for a quick cook.
