Preparation

In a large pan, cook pasta in about 3 quarts of boiling salted water just until barely tender to bite, about 5 minutes, or cook according to package directions. Drain, rinse with cold water, and drain again. In a large bowl, combine pasta, peas, celery, onions and chopped mint. At this point, you may cover and refrigerate until next day. In a small bowl, whisk together oil, lemon juice and lemon peel. Add to pea mixture and stir to mix well. Season to taste with salt and pepper. If made ahead, cover and refrigerate for up to 2 hours. To serve, line 8 salad plates with lettuce leaves. Top equally with pea mixture and garnish with mint sprigs.
