Looking for an easy vegetarian recipe? Maybe a quick lunch recipe?

Now Henry might just be one of the biggest pesto fans in the world. So it's natural that here at BOSH we nail the pesto recipes.

This homemade red vegan pesto pasta is creamy, delicious and has a rich, nutty taste.

It’s easy to whip up, simply put the pasta on whilst you make your sauce in a blender. Make sure to save some of the pasta water to add to the pesto later!

We’ve used spaghetti but it’s perfect with any pasta of your choice. Serve on it’s own or with a side salad and enjoy! A great vegan family recipe, meal to share with friends...or keep it all for yourself!
