350g fresh pasta
250g frozen peas
3 tablespoon spinach pesto
200g chargrilled sliced baby courgettes
200g sliced chargrilled halloumi
- Simply boil the pasta, tossing in the peas for the last 3 mins.
- Chargrill the sliced courgettes and halloumi then mix together with the pasta and your homemade pesto with a sprinkling of parmesan.
I throw in some extra basil leaves for the grownups! It's always helpful to have recipes up your sleeve that the children love and yet are tasty for parents too :-)
