This pasta sauce is a great way to get veggies into children! When my boys were very young they started turning their noses up at anything green so I started calling it ‘dinosaur sauce’ – it worked! They’ve been devouring it ever since…
100g pine nuts
200ml extra virgin olive oil
1 big handful basil
2-3 big handfuls of spinach
1 clove of garlic
Juice of 1 lemon
Big pinch of Himalayan pink salt
Throw it all in a food processor or blender until smooth. You should have enough to freeze for another meal or two, it all depends on how saucy you make the pasta!
I serve it with Doves Farms gluten free fusilli pasta – half way through the pasta boiling I like to add about half cup of peas. Drain the pasta and peas, add it back to the pot with some of the sauce, warm it altogether – serve topped with a little parmesan, delicious!
