glorious greens pesto pasta

Whether you're looking to make your meals more nutrient dense or hoping to sneak some extra greens into the kiddos - this is the meal for you! Easy, versatile and nutrient dense, this pasta dinner is glorious for a reason - with a few scoops of greens powder added to your pesto you easily check the box on your daily greens intake!
This recipe allows for a lot of creativity and is extremely forgiving. Don't have cashews? No problem! Sub in sunflower seeds. Mix up your greens - add some arugula for a peppery bite. It also works incredibly well as a sandwich or wrap spread. Happy creating!

Yields: 4 servings

ingredients
1 package of your favourite pasta - we recommend True Local Kaslo Sourdough's Rotini
¾ cup of soaked cashews
½ cup fresh basil
2 cups packed kale or spinach
⅓ cup of olive oil
2-3 garlic cloves
3-4 tbsp of nutritional yeast (optional)
5 tbsp preferred greens powder
Salt + pepper to taste

method
Soak cashews in hot water for 15 minutes. If using sunflower seeds soak in hot water for 1 hour.
Bring large pot of water to boil and cook pasta according to directions.
In your food processor, add all ingredients except cashews.
Drain water from cashews and add to food processor, blend until combined.
You may need to mix with a spoon and make sure everything gets mixed together evenly. Add more oil in small increments as needed. This may especially be the case if you opted for kale.
Combine sauce and pasta together in a large mixing bowl.
Serve and enjoy your nutrient dense meal!
Place leftovers in a sealed glass container in the fridge for up to 2-3 days.
