Green Goodness 12 Minute Pesto Pasta

Hey guys i am back with another 12 minute pasta recipe, this one is a little different you don't even need a second pan for the sauce! Just a blender for the pesto. This pesto is packed with lots of veggies and still has a really nice strong flavour. Really simple ingredients and the pesto tastes really good on just about anything. You can use raw broccoli but i do not cope well with a lot of raw veggies so i lightly steam mine until tender. 

Serves 2 
160-200g pasta (depending how hungry you are)
1 cup broccoli florets (about half a large head steamed over the boiling pasta in a sieve until slightly soft, rinsed in cold water straight away)
2/3 cup packed fresh basil 
1 clove of garlic 
1/3 cup fresh frozen garden peas
1tbs nutritional yeast 
juice of half a lemon 
2tbs of water to blend  

Get the pasta on to boil and steam the broccoli over the boiling pasta until slightly soft then rinse in cold water. Place all ingredients into blender and blend, add in the water 1tbs at a time just to get it going. When the pasta is cooked drain and rinse, add the pesto and mix well, return to heat and warm through for a few minutes. Serve and enjoy! 

I hope you enjoyed this recipe, if you do decide to make this be sure to tag me over on social media. Until next time, Helen xx
