  • 200g dried linguine
  • 130g frozen peas, defrosted
  • 50g watercress
  • 50g parmesan
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 20g basil
  • 1 lime, juice and zest
  • 60ml olive oil

  1. Cook the pasta according to the pack instructions until al dente (usually a minute or two less than suggested) drain and reserve a ladle of cooking water.
  2. For the pesto, add all the ingredients, aside from the spring onions to a food processor and pulse until combined, you may need a touch more oil.
  3. Fold through the pasta, along with the spring onions and enough cooking water to make a silky coating. Serve immediately with some toasted seeds to top.
