Notes

This sauce is so vibrant and full of fresh, zingy flavour. It can transform even the simplest pasta dish or bowl of boiled potatoes. Green sauce: • Toss with hot baby potatoes or drizzle over roasted vegetables. • Makes a great sauce with prawns and pasta. • Use as a dressing for salads. • Add toasted pine nuts and grated parmesan cheese for a pesto-style sauce.
