Watercress Inspiration

Watercress Pesto & lemon linguine


  • 400g dried linguine
  • 1 x 80g pack watercress
  • zest and juice of 1 unwaxed lemon
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 50g macadamia or pine nuts
  • 3 tbsp olive oil

Cooking Method

Step 1

Cook the linguine following pack instructions until al dente. Reserve 2 small handfuls of small watercress leaves and roughly chop the remainder. Put the chopped watercress into a small food processor with the rest of the ingredients and blitz to a smooth paste. Add a splash of water if you need to. Season well.

Step 2

Reserve a cupful of the pasta water, then drain the linguine. Tip back into the pan off the heat, and add the pesto. Toss well with a splash of the reserved water so it makes a glossy sauce that coats the pasta. Season to taste. Serve in warmed bowls with the reserved watercress over the top, and more lemon zest, if you like.
