"This creamy vegan courgette pesto pasta is a simple, fresh and healthy recipe perfect for the summer! It’s ready in 15 minutes and it’s full of flavours. This pesto is a spin of the traditional Italian pesto made from basil. It uses fresh courgettes or zucchini, that are seasonal to the summer, to make an incredibly tasty, creamy and seasonal summer meal. Courgettes are one of my favourite vegetables and I had to create a vegan pesto with them. They are the queens of the summer and a great vegetable, they are cheap, nutritious and easy to get! They make up the perfect summer pesto!"
