Kale Pesto Pasta

I don’t think we’ve ever sought after or potentially eaten so much pasta… It’s definitely become a store cupboard staple over the last couple of weeks for many of us (for better or worse…). This kale pesto is a fantastic way to incorporate more deeply nutritious greens into a carbohydrate-dense dish with ease. I’ve opted for penne here, but feel free to use whatever pasta you’ve got.

How to Make it

  • Combine all pesto ingredients until smooth in a high-speed blender or Nutri Bullet.
  • Set to one side (this can be made in advance and stored in the fridge for up to 3 days).
  • Put pasta on to cook according to the instructions on the packet.
  • Once cooked, drain the pasta and return to the pot. Add the beans and most of the pesto and leave to gently heat through over a low heat.
  • Serve in bowls topped with pine nuts, dairy free yogurt or cream cheese, and garnished with fresh basil and black pepper to desired taste. Buon appetito!
