  • 50 g rocket (arugula) leaves washed and roughly chopped
  • 30 g pine nuts plus a small handful for serving
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or more until you have the desired consistency
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • ½ lemon juiced, or to taste
  • pinch salt or more, to taste

Instructions

  • Bring a large pot of boiling water to the boil and cook the tagliatelle according to the packet instructions.

  • If serving with extra pine nuts, lightly toast them in a dry frying pan for a couple of minutes. Stir often to prevent them from burning.
  • Once cooked drain the pasta and stir through the rocket pesto, heating gently.
  • Sprinkle over the toasted pine nuts and serve immediately.
