How To Make Green Pasta

Have your daily dose of veggies in this delicious green pasta recipe. Pick your fave veggies and load them up in this healthy pasta dish.

Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 20 mins
Total: 30 mins
Serves:

Ingredients

  • 6 spring onions
  • 1 leek
  • 1 tenderstem broccoli spears, large handful
  • olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 100 g frozen spinach
  • 2 frozen peas, large handfuls
  • 450 g dried pasta
  • 50 g parmesan cheese, plus extra to serve
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • fresh herbs, optional, to serve

Instructions

  1. Trim and slice the spring onions. Trim the leek, halve it lengthways, wash it, then finely slice. Finely slice the broccoli stalks, reserving the tips.

  2. Put a large, non-stick, shallow casserole pan on a medium heat. Put 1 tablespoon of olive oil into the pan, with the spring onions, leeks and broccoli stalks. Peel and finely chop the garlic and add to the pan.

  3. Add the frozen spinach and peas, then add a pinch of sea salt and black pepper. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes, or until soft but not coloured and the spinach has defrosted, stirring regularly.

  4. Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a large pan of boiling salted water, according to the packet instructions, adding the broccoli florets for the last 2 minutes.

  5. While everything is ticking away, finely grate the Parmesan.
  6. Scoop or pour out about 200ml of cooking water from the pasta into the veg pan. Now, you can either leave your sauce chunky, blitz it until smooth in a blender, or use a hand blender to go somewhere in between.

  7. Drain the pasta and broccoli, and tip it into the sauce. Add 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil and the grated Parmesan, and toss it all together.
