watercress pesto pasta

This is the perfect mid-week meal in minutes. It's quick and easy to prepare, with few ingredients (most of which are "store cupboard essentials") and yet is satisfying and so flavourful.

Three great health benefits: boosts immunity, helps support the body's detoxification process, beneficial for heart health

Serves 2
Enjoy immediately

250g gluten free pasta
200g frozen peas
1 tbsp almonds
1 clove garlic
2 handfuls watercress
Juice of 1/2 lemon
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

1) Prepare the pasta according to packet instructions. 2-3 minutes before the end of the cooking time, add the peas to the same saucepan and boil together with the pasta until cooked. Drain and return to the saucepan.
2) While the pasta is cooking, make the watercress pesto. Whizz the almonds in a food processor until finely chopped (but not "breadcrumb" texture). Add the garlic and whizz again, followed by the watercress, lemon juice, olive oil and salt & pepper. Stir into the pasta and peas. Enjoy immediately.
