  1. Cook the spaghetti following pack instructions. Meanwhile, in a small bowl or jug, beat the eggs together with the milk, pesto, Parmesan, artichokes and seasoning.

  2. Heat a small pan on a medium heat and add the pine nuts. Toast for a few mins, shaking the pan occasionally, until they are pale golden. Keep your eye on them as they can catch and burn quickly.

  3. Once the pasta is cooked, drain in a colander and tip back into the pan. Put the pan onto a low heat and pour over the egg mixture, tossing together to coat all of the pasta in the sauce – take care not to heat it for too long or it will start to scramble.

  4. Toss through the toasted pine nuts and serve with extra Parmesan at the table, if you like.

What can I use instead of fish? I’m making it for my mother & boyfriend, & they’re both allergic to fish

Thanks for your question. This recipe does not contain any fish so will be fine for anyone with a fish allergy.
