Tasty lunch, the fresh basil really brightens it up. A bit too much lemon but easily counteracted with another generous sprinkle of Parmesan.

This was lovely and light, but lacked a bit of punch. I felt it needed quite a lot of seasoning to pick it up. Was tasty cold as leftovers.

Fresh tasting and lots of fresh veg but go easy on the lemon. Easy midweek meal.
