Pesto primavera pasta

Leave a comment

Try saying that 5 times quickly! 😛 I sooo love this dish. It is homely and nutritious and comforting and above all, very tasty! It amounts to some delicious, finely chopped green veggies, homemade pesto and pasta. Mmmm.

Pesto

1 cup basil leaves

2 Tablespoons semi dried tomatoes

3 garlic cloves

2 Tablespoons oil

juice of 1 small lemon

salt and pepper

 

Primavera

1/2 zucchini

3 mushrooms

1 leek or onion

1/2 cup broccoli (chopped)

2 celery stalks

1/2 cup snow peas

 

Plus 2 cups gluten free pasta

 

For the pesto:

Blend all ingredients together in a mini food processor (or the like) to form a paste.

For the pasta
Cook gluten free pasta as per instructions.

For the primevera:

Roughly chop vegetables and sauté them together, beginning with the onion/leek and keeping the broccoli to last because it will overcook quickly. Add in pesto mix and stir through drained, cooked pasta.

Enjoy!
