•1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
•2 tablespoons olive oil
•2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
•2 cloves garlic, minced
•2 teaspoons freshly grated lemon peel
•1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions
1. Bring water to boil in large saucepan. Add peas; cook 2 - 3 minutes until crisp-tender. Drain; rinse under cold water. Combine peas, pasta and tomatoes in large bowl. Set aside.

2. Whisk Gremolata Dressing ingredients in small bowl until well blended. Toss 2 tablespoons dressing with pasta mixture. Set aside.
