Description

If you think pesto is only for basil, think again. Here, a pesto is made by processing cooked peas and broccoli with the usual ingredients (garlic, pine nuts, parmesan, and yes, basil) to a paste, then gradually blending in olive oil until thick and spreadable. You can use this in the same way as traditional basil, including as a topping for pasta, as in this recipe, which also includes sun-dried tomatoes and grilled courgettes plus some reserved peas and broccoli.

    Directions

    1. Save some peas and a few broccoli sprigs for garnishing.
    2. Prepare the pesto: grind the peas, broccoli, garlic, pine nuts, parmesan and basil in a blender. Slowly add olive oil while grinding until you obtain a creamy paste. Season with salt. Remove and set aside.
    3. Cut the zucchini into thin slices lengthwise, season with salt and grill on both sides for a short time. Season with a little olive oil and set aside.
    4. Cook the pasta until al dente (about 9 minutes). Drain and add pesto to taste. Also add the grilled zucchini, peas, broccoli and pieces of dried tomato. Serve with freshly grated Parmesan.
