Pesto is one of the most versatile things out there. It can be spread on bread, drizzled on top of vegetables, or used as a pasta sauce – as in this recipe. Using kale instead of basil makes for a winter pesto with an intense flavour befitting of the season. Combined with the sweet crunch of mangetout, it will make the perfect pasta dish for a cold day!
