Green veggies with pasta recipe

It’s the time of year where my garden is bursting with fruits and veggies. I’ve got loads of greens growing so I wanted to chuck them together for a simple and delicious dinner.

This meal is packed full of nutrients. The broad beans are very high in protein and are also an excellent source of folic acid, copper, iron and manganese. The climbing beans and runner beans contain a good source of vitamins A and C. Finally, the courgette contains a good level of potassium and vitamin C.
