Pasta with Sun Dried Tomato and Snow Peas : Mustard Flavor

This is very easy and yummy.

comment from Mrs. P.
The mustard and mustard seeds add a secret dimension to the pasta!
Makes you wonder, "What is that delightful taste?"

3cups of your favorite short pasta
2cups of snow peas, cut in half
8-10 sun dried tomatoes marinated in olive oil, sliced
2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard
1/2 table spoon of mustard seed, crushed
2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
sea salt

Mix the olive oil and the mustard in a big bowl.
Bring a pot of water to a rolling boil. Add the salt ( 1.3 tablespoons for 0.5 gal ). Put the pasta in the water and cook as long as indicated. Add the snow peas to the water 2 min before the pasta is done. Drain the pasta and the snow peas and put them in the bowl which has mustard oil and mix well. Add the sun dried tomatoes and the mustard seed and mix lightly.
Salt to taste.
