Put sour cream, lemon juice, lemon zest, chives, dill and parsley into a small bowl and whisk together to make a dressing. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.

Cook pasta according to directions on package. When pasta is almost ready to be drained, quickly drop the pea pods into the water with the pasta, stir once and then drain everything together into a colander. Once drained, transfer the hot pasta and peas to a large bowl. Add escarole, radishes, green onions and reserved dressing and toss well. Serve immediately.
