Despite the cold, I love this recipe–so light, fresh and super tasty!

I took the pic the other week but finally wrote up the recipe last Sunday whilst watching Netflix. I think it’s ok though, cold Sundays spent inside watching movies and cooking are the best.

My courgette pasta with kale pesto, peas and avocado is just the sort of easy, quick and tasty meal I like. It really couldn’t be more simple to make but tastes amazing, really fresh and super healthy.

Are you into spiralising? I love it, two minutes and you have an amazing veggie healthy base for salads, curries and stir-fries, etc.

I combined my courgetti with my favourite kale pesto, sweet peas, creamy avocado and crunchy walnuts to make one seriously delicious salad.

I’ve also got a thing about green food. You know it’s packed full of goodness.

      1. We didn’t have enough courgette so I made spaghetti noodles and then heated the peas and courgenni in the water after the noodles were done. Mixed all together – yum

    1. Hi Sandy, so glad you like it.
      The link is there but it’s not showing up – if you click on the kale pesto it should work.
      Hope you enjoy
