pea shoots - what to do with them?

Bought a beautiful bag of bright green pea shots at the farmers market today, but I'm not sure what to do with them. The vendor said they were good in salads, but do I use the whole stalk or just the smaller leaves and wavy bits at the end? I've read of saute-ing them - again, do I just chuck the whole thing in the pan, or trim them down? I suppose they'd cook in a flash. Would you eat them on their own, or with pasta?
Many thanks, all ideas welcome
