-sea salt and white pepper, to taste

1 lb. penne pasta

3 Tbsp. Big Y salted butter

1/3 cup shallots, finely chopped

1. Wash hands with soap and water.

2. Rinse all fresh produce items under cold running water prior to prepping.

3. In a small bowl, combine milk, yogurt, mustard, lemon juice and salt and pepper; set aside.

4. Cook pasta according to package directions until al dente; drain, set aside.

5. While pasta is cooking, in a large skillet over medium heat, add butter. Once melted, add shallots, garlic and peas and sauté for 3 minutes or until tender.

6. Whisk in flour until well blended. Gradually whisk in milk mixture and bring to a gentle boil; cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. If the sauce seems too thick, gradually add more milk, 1 tablespoon at a time.
