Louie Eating Prawn Pesto Pasta

What you'll need to make enough for your little one, plus leftovers!

  • 60g of small star shaped pasta or orzo
  • Five stems of asparagus
  • Half a courgette
  • 30g of peas
  • 30g baby corn
  • Prawns (as many as you would like!)
  • Clove of garlic

How to make these easy peasy prawn pesto pasta:

  • Start to cook two small handfuls of small star shaped pasta (you could also use orzo!)
  • Whilst the pasta is cooking, chop five stems of asparagus and half a courgette into teeny tiny pieces, and dice some baby corn.
  • In the final minute of the pasta, add a handful of peas, then once cooked, drain and set on the side.
  • Fry prawns in an oil of your choice and chopped/crushed garlic, then add the baby corn, then the courgette and asparagus.
  • Once cooked, add your pasta and peas back in with a big teaspoon of green pesto (I used the vegan pesto from Deliciously Ella and stir through.
  • And there you have it! Tuck in and enjoy.
