    2       c            Fresh or frozen green peas
    2       tb           Butter
      1/4   c            Dry vermouth
      1/2   c            Chopped fresh scallions,
                         Including tender green parts
    2       tb           Finely chopped fresh basil,
                         Or 1 teaspoon dried
      1/2   lb           Freshly made pasta
                         Salt
                         Freshly ground black pepper
 
   If using fresh peas, parboil and drain.  If using frozen, boil to thaw and
   drain.
   Heat the butter in a large skillet and add the vermouth and scallions.
   Cook for about 10 minutes until scallions turn soft and the vermouth
   thickens and deglazes the pan.
   Add the peas and basil, turn the heat to high for 2 minutes, and pour
   immediately over pasta.  Toss well and serve.
