Green Lemon Garlic Butterflies

1 c. dry split peas, rinsed
3 c. water
2 c. bow-tie pasta
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 T oil
2 T lemon juice (~ 1 lemon)
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/3 c. chopped parsley (optional)

In a covered saucepan, simmer peas and water for 25 min. Add pasta and cook covered 15 minutes longer, stirring frequently until pasta is tender. Drain. Stir in garlic, margarine, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Place in a shallow dish. Sprinkle with chopped parsley. (Serves ~ 6)

I have not tried it with whole wheat pasta (my kids won't eat it), the pasta might need to cook the whole time with the split peas
