' This pasta recipe is great for a family supper. It is made from frozen peas, store cupboard pasta, a jar of pesto with a few added nutritional ingredients. The cashews make the pesto a little more creamy as well as providing a healthy serving of fats. This is a weeknight go to meal with a few little tweaks! It is delicious, healthy full of vegggies and quick to make. Enjoy!'
