Pasta with pea pesto recipe

Recently, I shared my pea pesto recipe and so I wanted to share with you this delicious pasta recipe I’ve been using it in. I find that the pesto adds a lovely richness to the pasta. The extra ingredients are basically an unblended version of the pesto, which really enhances the flavour and makes it even more yumcious.
