Brussel ‘pesto’

A healthier version of ‘pesto’. Yes, not a true pesto in any sense, but is the mixture of greens, cheese and nuts that is the golden combination without addition of lots of extra oil.

Brussels, peanuts, cheese, onion and and mushrooms blitzed in a processor- saute in a pan for a couple of minutes then stir through pasta.

The mushrooms are a good filler- for 4 portions I only used 75g cheddar and 50g peanuts.

I added some ham to this and used 75g spaghetti per portion so a decent bowl full for 448 calories.
