Garlic granules 1 tsp
Olive oil 4 tbsp
Everyday Favourites salt ½ tsp
Everyday Favourites basil 40g
Parmesan cheese (grated) 25g
Everyday Favourites rosemary needles 20g
Everyday Favourites cracked black pepper to taste
Everyday Favourites crushed chillies 1 tsp
Everyday Favourites oregano 1 tsp
Everyday Favourites rubbed thyme 1 tsp
Sunflower seeds 20g
Pumpkin seeds 15g
Baby spinach 100g
Tagliatelle 200g
Cherry tomatoes, diced 120g
Fresh green beans, sliced 120g


  1. To make the pesto, place the basil, grated Parmesan cheese and around half of the garlic granules into a blender (if you don’t have one, you can use a pestle and mortar instead) and mix until a thick paste is achieved. Whilst still mixing, gradually drizzle in olive oil (around three tablespoons should suffice) until binded. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. You can add more ingredients, if necessary, until the desired flavour and consistency is achieved.
  2. For the pasta, bring a pan of salted water to boil over a medium heat, adding the pasta and half the rosemary when ready.
  3. Whilst the pasta is cooking heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a frying pan on a medium heat. Add the sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, thyme, oregano, diced tomatoes, sliced green beans and the remaining garlic. Cook for around 5 minutes, mixing throughout, until the vegetables have softened; and then turn to low leave whilst you prepare the pasta.
  4. Once the pasta has been on for 7-9 minutes, and is cooked to al dente, add the baby spinach for a final 30 seconds. Then, scoop out a mug of cooking water and set this aside, before draining.
  5. Combine the pesto with the tagliatelle and spinach, adding a little cooking water to loosen, if needed, and then season to taste.
  6. Divide the pasta and spinach between your bowls and spoon over the tomatoes and beans. To finish, add a little drizzle of extra virgin olive and some finely grated Parmesan and enjoy.
