    Watercress pesto linguine

    Serves: 4


    350g linguine or pappardelle

    1 small clove garlic

    25g pine nuts

    1 tbsp capers

    25g Parmigiano Reggiano

    100g bag watercress

    4 tbsp olive oil

    squeeze lemon juice

    50g pitted black olives, roughly chopped

    150g cherry tomatoes, halved


    1. Cook the pasta in boiling water according to pack instructions, until just tender and al dente.

    2. Meanwhile, place the garlic, pine nuts and capers in a food processor and blitz until finely chopped. Add the Parmigiano Reggiano, then all except a handful of the watercress. Blitz again until finely chopped. With the motor running, add the olive oil and finally the lemon juice. Season to taste.
