This is a wonderful quick and easy mid-week recipe the whole family will enjoy! If you are looking to introduce more vegan friendly recipes into your diet, this is a great place to start. It is wonderfully creamy while still managing to be light and fresh at the same time.

2 cups fresh basil
1/2 cup toasted pine nuts
3 garlic cloves
2 tsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp sea salt
3 Tbsp olive oil
3 Tbsp Pureharvest Nom Lush Almond

Blitz the basil, pine nuts, garlic, salt and lemon juice in a food processor until smooth. Slowly drizzle in the oil and milk until a creamy paste is reached. Spoon out and set aside to add to the cooked pasta.

Mix the creamy dressing through 4 cups of cooked pasta. Any pasta shape you like will work.

Spoon into bowl and top with a few sprigs of basil. Enjoy!

The pesto on its own will last in the fridge in an airtight container for a few days.
