One Pot Green Vegetable and Pesto Pasta

One Pot Green Vegetable and Pesto Pasta


  • 250g pasta of your choice, I use brown rice pasta
  • Handful of broccoli, broken into small florets
  • 1 Courgette (finely chopped or spiralized)
  • Handful of frozen peas
  • Handful of spinach
  • Few tablespoons vegan pesto, to taste (Homemade, or store bought – Sacla vegan pesto is amazing)
  • Optional but yummy – A touch of something creamy (cashew cheese / cream, soya cream, vegan cream cheese), I love a couple of tablespoons of my homemade cashew cheese (linked above) stirred in.


  1. Add the pasta and the broccoli to a large pan of salted boiling water. Bring to the boil and leave on simmer. 
  2. Cook according to packet instructions, adding the courgette and peas for the last 4 minutes, and the spinach for the last minute, stirring until wilted.
  3. Drain well, and stir in the pesto, tasting as you go to see if you need more / less. Stir in a touch of cream / cheese if desired, season and serve.
