Busy weeknights need quick dinners! Our deliciously quick pasta pesto with broad beans and feta cheese is delicious, filling and so, so quick to cook!  You don’t have to double pod the broad beans but it tastes nicer if you do…. and you can always get the kids to help out with the podding! 

How to make Pasta Pesto with Broad Beans

Okay so first up – I use fresh pasta for this dinner recipe – it tastes nicer and cooks quicker. Grab a mixed pack so you’ve got egg pasta and spinach pasta for added yum! 

Pod the broad beans and boil them for just about 5 minutes until tender. Run them under cold water to cool them, then pod the bright green bean from the thick skin – leave to one side whilst you cook the pasta. 

Cook the pasta – drain and toss with the pesto and broad beans – scatter over the crumbled feta and eat straight away.
