Edamame Fettucine with Walnut Pesto

This quick and easy pasta dish with fresh garlic and basil makes a great meal on its own or you can add your favourite meat or seafood. On its own, this meal still provides a good amount of protein and healthy fats while being low in carbohydrates and sugar. Tip: Bake the walnuts the day before to save time.

Ingredients

  • ⅔ cup (70g) walnuts

  • 120g pkt baby spinach

  • ½ cup basil leaves
