Courgette Pesto...!

This is a great recipe to get as much veggie nutrution into little tums as you can! Kids love it! Get loads of sauce into them with a pasta like conchiligie or fusili...!

You'll need

handful pine nuts
1 lge courgette
Half an onion or 3 scallions
2 cherry tomatoes
clove garlic
2 tbsp groud parmesan.


Dry 'fry' the pine nuts in a saucepan, without oil of course, until golden. Set aside. Add oil to the warm pan, and fry the chopped courgette, onion, tomatoes and garlic until soft. Blitz in a food processor along with the pine nuts and then stir in the parmesan cheese.

Stir through cooked pasta!
