This is an easy to prepare pasta dish that you can have on your table in 20 to 30 minutes. Many Italian-Americans will remember having this dish as a child as it is considered a comfort food. There are a number of variations of Pasta Piselli; some include a little tomato sauce, some do not include eggs, and others add a lot of butter. The choice of pasta is important to this dish as you want the pasta to be similar in size to the peas. Ditalini, ditali, tubetti, or the tiny shell-shape pasta called conchigliette are good choices.
