Pasta with green goddess sauce
Loaded with greens, this sauce is healthy and hearty.

400g pasta

100g bag baby spinach

140g frozen peas

Small bunch basil, leaves picked, a few reserved to serve

3 tbsp green pesto

150ml single cream

50g parmesan (or vegan alternative), grated, plus a little extra to serve

Cook the pasta according to the instructions.

Boil the kettle, put the spinach and peas in a bowl, and cover with the boiling water.

Leave for a few minutes until the peas are tender, then drain well.

Tip the vegetables into a food processor, add the basil, pesto, cream and parmesan, and blitz to make a smooth sauce.

Drain the pasta, reserving a little of the cooking water, and return to the pan.

Pour over the sauce and mix well over a low heat.

Add a little pasta water to loosen the sauce.

Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve with extra parmesan and scatter with basil leaves, as garnish.
