Whether it’s the smooth, creamy texture or the big bold basil flavour, children love Pesto. And parents do too – quick, convenient, healthy and guaranteed to please everyone, Pesto Pasta is perfect for mid-week family mealtimes.
Rachel Allen, busy TV cook, author, teacher and mother of three, has shared some of her favourite Pesto recipes with us, which we think you and your family will enjoy too.
We all know that clean plates = happy parents. That’s why we always keep a jar of Sacla’ Pesto in the cupboard, because kids love Pesto. No fibs needed.
The Little head chef RECIPE CARD
The heat is on and it’s nearly time for the kids to break up from school. But don’t panic… turn your little ones into little head chefs this summer and teach them the joy of Italian cooking with help from Rachel Allen.
Rachel has created this tasty, easy to prepare recipe card from our new Family Book of Pesto, filled with recipes to inspire families to cook healthy, delicious food with Pesto. It’s a great way for children to get creative in the kitchen, as well as bringing a taste of Italy into your home.
Let the kids take the lead in the supermarket as they round up their ingredients from the shopping list, then they can become head chef of the kitchen at home as they tick off tasks from the easy to follow recipe. Parents can supervise their new head chefs and encourage their passion for cooking. Before long they will be whipping up Pesto delights for the whole family to enjoy!
