Roasted Courgette Pesto Pasta (Quick, Easy, Vegan Recipe)



Pesto pasta is incredible (one of Henry’s favourite meals ever in fact), and this roasted courgette pesto is extra special. Roasting the courgettes and blending them into the pesto adds a really nice depth of flavour and a really moreish, creamy texture. Plus, the sharp, zingyness of the tomatoes on top compliment it perfectly!

This dish is perfect for a really quick lunch or dinner as it’s so easy to throw together. Trust us, your tastebuds will be impressed. Also, we have WAY more quick, easy lunch & dinner recipes lined up so keep your eyes peeled!

Happy Cooking,
