Beautiful and fresh for lunch and dinner, this is perfect for packed lunch too. Your family will love it!

Ingredients

  • 350g pasta (short pasta preferably)
  • 250g Broccoli florets
  • handful of fresh basil
  • handful of parsley
  • 3tbs olive oil
  • salt, pinch
  • pinenuts, 100g
  • 1 clove of garlic

Directions

  1. Boil 1 litre of water in a large saucepan. Add a table spoon of course salt and add the pasta in. Follow the cooking times on the package and add the broccoli florets 4 minutes before the pasta is cooked.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, use a pestle and mortar (or a hand blender will do the job too) and blend together the basil, parley, olive oil, salt, pine nuts and garlic. No nuts if you have a nut allergy. You can add a handful of parmesan cheese or a handful of fresh rocket.
  3. Drain the pasta and the broccoli.  Mix together with the pesto and ENJOY!!!
