    260g Prawns (2 packets)

    4 Courgettes

    3 handfuls of Basil Leaves, chopped

    25g Pine Nuts

    25g Parmesan Cheese

    1 tsp Lemon Juice

    1 clove Garlic

    1 tbsp Olive Oil

    A pinch of Sea Salt and Pepper


    To make your pesto – place all the ingredients (except the courgette and prawns) in a food processor and whizz until smooth. Season to taste.

    To prepare your courgette – using a peeler (or spiralizer) slice the courgette into thin, spaghetti-like strips. Place in a large bowl. Cover with boiling water for 2-3 minutes, until tender.

    While your courgetti is softening, fry the prawns until pink and cooked through. Add in the pesto, stir through the courgetti and serve immediately. Enjoy!
