Pasta with peas in a pronto

You’d be surprised at how much flavour you can pack into this sauce, which can be prepared in less time than it takes to cook your pasta!

Fibro Food Fairy

My objective was to come up with a dish that was full of the flavours of spring; fresh, vibrant and easy to prepare. Pea and mint are a classic combination which goes well with fresh parsley and lemon juice.

Garnished with a few optional sun-dried tomatoes, for a little pop of colour.

This is a great recipe to have in the locker when you’re tired but want something super tasty. No specialist ingredients, just supermarket staples, that won’t break the bank. No culinary skills required, just a food processor or stick blender. Little thought required and so perfect for fibro foggy days.

Serve with a final squeeze of lemon juice over the top.

Perfect addition to your meat free recipes repertoire, as long as you don’t mind a bit of green
