Pea Pesto [Vegan]

This is a delicious take on traditional pesto sauce. I created this when I was craving pesto but didn't have enough basil to make a batch big enough for two. I did have a freezer full of peas though. The sweetness of the peas actually blends really well with the basil and noodles. This is a great recipe when you want to add a little more veggies to your meal.

1 cup fresh sweet peas
1/2 cup basil leaves
1 tbs grapeseed oil
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp lemon juice

Combined all ingredients in a food proccessor and blend until well mixed. It's ok to have a few chucks of peas and basil. This is not meant to be a liquidy sauce. Mix with 3 cups cooked pasta. You can top it with some parmesean cheese [making it nonvegan] or even add the cheese during the processing.
