A delicious, healthy and easy to cook dish. This was made as kind of an experiment as I couldn't find any fresh basil and broccoli (another recipe to follow) on New Years Day and I fancied something healthy and tasty. I was surprised at how easy and flavoursome this dish turned out to be.

Method

1. Put the pasta on to cook.
2. Add the Parmesan, hazelnuts, chilli and garlic to a blender.
3. Drain the pasta and pour the contents of the blender onto the pasta using a spatula to get it all out.

5. Mix well and serve with a final grating of parmesan.

TIP

The dish keeps well in a sealed container in the fridge. Add a couple of tablespoons of the retained pasta water when heating will ensure it is not dry.
