  • Easy
  • Serves 4
really easy and scrumptious


  • 1 lb (450 g) dried pasta
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 level tablespoons fresh lemon zest, plus a little extra to sprinkle at the end
  • 12 whole peppercorns, lightly crushed in a pestle and mortar
  • 1½ oz (40 g) fresh basil
  • 1 oz (25 g) fresh mint
  • 2 oz (50 g) fresh rocket leaves
  • 6 spring onions, trimmed
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • sea salt


  • STEP 1
    Begin by heating four pasta bowls ready for serving. Then, in a large saucepan, heat up 8 pints (4.7 litres) water with 1 level tablespoon sea salt and bring it up to a good, fierce boil.
  • STEP 2
    Add the pasta to the boiling water and stir once, then let it boil briskly for 10 minutes.
  • STEP 3
    All that happens now is that while the pasta is cooking, the rest of the ingredients are piled into a processor with a teaspoon of salt, then one big whiz till the herbs are chopped and that is it.
  • STEP 4
    Now drain the pasta and return it quickly to the saucepan with the sauce and toss the two together. Serve in the warm bowls with a little extra zest sprinkled over each one.
