1 tbsp lemon juice

120g sun dried tomatoes

20g basil leaves

2 tbsp olive oil

Cook the pasta as per instructions.

While the pasta cooks, heat the coconut oil in a pan over a medium heat

Chop the courgettes into half moons and the broccoli into 1 inch florets, saute for 5-7 minutes until the broccoli has softened slightly.

Combine the sun-dried tomatoes, basil, lemon juice and olive oil in a food processor, pulse for 30 seconds until the sun dried tomatoes start to break down, stop before they become a pesto-like puree.

Drain the pasta and rinse under cold water, return to the pan, stir in the veg and sun-dried tomato mixture until warmed through.

Serve in bowls, sprinkling over the seeds if preferred.
