Gluten Free Pasta with Watercress and Walnut Pesto

Today I fancied something quick, tasty and cheesy for lunch. I had a big healthy bag of watercress in the fridge and this is a really tasty way to use it. You can use any sort of gluten free pasta for this dish but I used Glutafin spaghetti. Serves: 4 Ingredients 30g watercress 30g basil 2 tbsp walnuts 1 garlic clove – sliced 30g parmesan – grated A few parmesan shavings 1 tsp sea salt 100ml olive oil 400g gluten free pasta Add the watercress, basil, walnuts, garlic, salt, parmesan and oil to a blender and blend. Setting aside a few sprigs of watercress for decoration. image image

Divide between bowls and top with the remaining watercress and parmesan shavings. image

Enjoy!
