Raw Courgette Pasta Salad with Basil Pesto
Serves 6
Fresh? Check. Full of flavour? Check. Vegan, healthy and totally delicious? CHECK. This is one of my favourite recipes, which is somewhere between a salad and a pasta dish, and combines the lightness of the former with the heartiness of the latter. I guess what I'm saying is that it's the perfect dish. So now that I've completely built up your expectations, please read on.
