If you buy a jar of green pesto, most will cost you about 4 syns for a teeny tablespoon which doesn’t go very far stir into your pasta. This delicious dish of Zucchini and Linguine uses my homemade Arugula, Basil and Spinach Pesto and gives you a decent and filling serving for a reasonable about of syns.
This recipe is vegetarian, Slimming World and Weight Watchers friendly
