- 200g mixed green vegetable (we used asparagus, broad beans and spring onions)
- 700ml hot vegetable stock
- 140g cooked pasta (spaghetti works well, chopped into small pieces)
- 215g can butter beans, rinsed and drained
- 3 tbsp green pesto
Pesto is a generic Italian name for any sauce made by pounding ingredients together.
Place the green vegetables in a medium-size saucepan, then pour over the stock. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer until the vegetables are cooked through, about 3 mins. Stir in the cooked pasta, beans and 1 tbsp of pesto. Warm through, then ladle into bowls and top each with another drizzle of pesto.
