Summery Green Pasta
Full of all the good green things that are in season in early summer!
leek - finely chopped
whole lettuce (Gem or Butter lettuces are nice) - chopped into 2 cm strips
or two small Little Gem lettuces
shelled broad beans
topped and tailed & cut in half lengthways
Asparagus- stems finely chopped, heads left whole.
(you could leave this out, but it is nice!)
pasta (if using the quinoa pasta)- or 300g if using normal pasta
The Quinoa pasta is super filling so you need less!
Salt & Pepper to taste
Boil the water for the pasta
In the meantime, chop all your ingredients.
In a large pan, sweat the leeks until they are softened
Add the lettuce & let it cook down for a minute
Add all the other ingredients and simmer for 3-4 minutes until the snowpeas/mangtout are just softening.
By now your water should have boiled- Boil as per the instructions (NB: the quinoa pasta needs only 3 minutes)
Drain the pasta & add it all into the green pasta sauce. Mix Well.
Season and add extra dill to garnish.
This recipe is super delicious with the addition of Good Carma cheezy sprinkles to serve on top! (Spoilers.. also coming in the June box!)
