This is the perfect dinner for when you really can’t be bothered to spend hours cooking but you still want something healthy and filling. It’s a super speedy meal which only take you about 15-20 all together so it’s an ideal midweek supper. I love adding extra veggies on top, it’s very effortless way of eating your greens without compromising on taste. This sauce is so simple, completely nut free and yet so packed with flavour and has the most gorgeous creamy consistency.
For the sauce:
1 cup of cooked peas
1/4 cup of basil leaves
a small handful of fresh mint leaves
2 tablespoons of olive oil
The juice of 1/2 lemon
1 teaspoon of One Earth Green Goddess
2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast
1 clove of garlic
Salt & pepper to taste
Pasta of your choice (I have used wheat spaghetti)
To add on on top (optional):
steamed broccoli florets, extra peas, grilled courgettes or peppers
Place all the ingredients for the pasta sauce and blitz for at least 1 minute until you have a creamy consistency. If you find it too too thick add more olive oil.
Cook the pasta of your choice according to the cooking instructions. Mix about 2 tablespoon of pesto in each plate and sprinkle with the hemp seeds or extra nutritional yeast. I love serving this pasta with some steamed romanesco cauliflower or broccoli but any roasted veggies would be great too.
Store the leftover sauce in a jar in the fridge for few days.
