Ingredients

300g / 10 oz. frozen peas
1 garlic clove
50g / 2 tbsp pine nuts
50g / 4 tbsp grated Parmesan
6 tbsp olive oil
A small bunch of tarragon
Salt & pepper


In a small pan, toast the pine nuts until fragrant. Set aside.


Cook the peas for 3-5 minutes, or until tender, and drain.


Tip the peas into a food processor or blender.


Add the garlic, pine nuts, Parmesan, olive oil and tarragon. Season with salt and pepper, then pulse until smooth-ish.


The sauce is on the thick side, so add 125ml / half a cup water if you want it more runny. Ideally, add water from the cooking pasta.


Use as you would traditional pesto.
