Another simple and “light” pasta dish. If you have any basil still flourishing in your garden, suggest that you make some of your own pesto and try this tasty dish – our family loved it
In case, like me, you have never made pesto, below is the recipe that I used, courtesy of Nadia Lim – I’m not into too much garlic in pesto, so this recipe was perfect for me…and you can of course adjust the ingredients including garlic. If you want, you can add some rashes of bacon or pancetta to the dish
We love leeks and the combo of leeks, peas, pesto and parmesan is made in Italian cuisine heaven!
So quick, easy and tasty -enjoy!
