Directions

Cook the pasta as per instructions.

While the pasta cooks, heat the coconut oil in a pan over a medium heat

Chop the courgettes into half moons and the broccoli into 1 inch florets, saute for 5-7 minutes until the broccoli has softened slightly.

Combine the sundried tomatoes, basil, lemon juice and olive oil in a food processor, pulse for 30 seconds until the sun dried tomatoes start to break down, stop before they become a pesto-like puree.

Drain the pasta and rinse under cold water, return to the pan, stir in the veg and sundried tomato mixture until warmed through.

Serve in bowls, sprinkling over the seeds if preferred.

This gluten free dish is a really quick and tasty weekday dinner with minimal effort involved.
If you want to add extra protein to this dish sauté a chicken breast with the veg.

Lavonne, just memorize that one ounce is about 30 grams and one pound is about 450 grams. If you remember that it’s easy to do rough conversions.

As you can see, this recipe lists tiny amounts! One ounce of green beans? 2+ ounces of broccoli? Are we being punished for something 🙂 ?

I eyeballed the amounts and it came out delicious! Fairly easy and my teenagers loved it. Will def enjoy it a few more times this summer.

As you can see, this recipe must be way off! As delicious as it sounds, one ounce of green beans? 2 ounces (plus) of broccoli? Are we being punished for something 🙂 ?

Sounds really tasty although as my husband doesn’t like the taste of coconut will use more olive oil and cauliflower instead of broccoli although I adore broccoli!

Sounds wonderful. Not used to attempting to convert g to what ever a normal recipe states. How would we find out to do the conversion?
