This is one of my favourite pastas to cook with from in store. It’s a tri coloured organic durum wheat pasta with spinach and tomato powder giving it the subtle colouring that it has. It goes really well in casseroles as well, but I love to make it with just a simple pine nut pesto and garnish with a few herbs and extra pine nuts for crunch. Here it is…

Serving size: 3-4



  1. Bring a large pot of water to the boil and then add the orecchiette pasta.
  2. Simmer and cook for 10-12 minutes until aldente.
  3. Drain and whilst still hot, stir through the pesto until well combined.
  4. Serve hot with a garnish of fresh basil and a sprinkling of toasted walnuts.
