Go Green Linguine

This is a great pasta sauce for hitting your five a day.

I hadn’t eaten broad beans since childhood. The thought of them! In our house they were boiled for a good few hours and that soggy metallic taste, no thanks! Not that I had a choice – would be tied to the chair until my plate was empty. Please don’t do this to your children(!)

Anyway! For the first time since childhood I ate broad beans last week, crushed up in a sauce with kale (from my garden) and asparagus. Quick and easy, you can’t mess up. Oh hang on, I did, I blitzed it too long. Don’t blitz it too long!
