Why I Love This Recipe

Looking for a new pasta sauce? Try peasto (pea pesto)

Ingredients You'll Need

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.
