Vegan Pesto Pasta
This quick and easy Pesto Pasta is a bit of a cheat, because the pesto comes out of a jar! Although it’s fairly easy to make your own pesto, it’s actually cheaper to get a jar, and Sacla now have a Free From basil pesto that uses tofu instead of cheese and has a reduced amount of extra virgin olive oil. Personally, I like to add the oil back into it for flavour, but it will still taste pretty great without it.

Instructions
  1. Cook the pasta according to the package instructions; usually 10-12 minutes.
  2. While the pasta cooks, griddle the pieces of courgette for about 10 minutes, turning occasionally until both sides are seared nicely and the pieces have softened.
  3. In a separate pan, heat 3-4 Tbsp pesto and add a splash of the pasta water. Add the courgettes and drained pasta and coat well in the sauce. Serve and enjoy!
