  1. Drain and rinse your pasta under cold water (yes, I’m letting you RINSE YOUR PASTA.  Just this one time though. Enjoy it!).
  2. Add to a bowl and toss with peas, strawberries, tomatoes, herbs (unless you’re making ahead and then add them later), and pistachios.
  3. Add a generous amount of salt and toss to coat.
  4. Add lime juice and enough olive oil to just coat and toss again!
  5. Finish with black pepper and chill in the fridge before serving.
