2 tbsp olive oil
1 unwaxed lemon, zest and juice
15g (about 4 pieces) Cooks’ Ingredients frozen semi-dried tomatoes, finely chopped
1. Whizz together the garlic, cashews and yeast flakes in a food processor or large blender until very finely chopped, then set aside 2 tbsp. Cook the cavolo nero in a large pan of boiling water for 5 minutes until very tender. Carefully lift out the leaves using tongs and drain in a colander.
2. Cook the pasta in the pan of boiling water according to pack instructions, adding the beans for the last 3 minutes. Reserve a mugful of cooking water before draining. Meanwhile, add the warm cavolo nero to the cashew mixture in the food processor, along with the olive oil and lemon zest, and whizz until very smooth.
