Add the lime juice, pesto, salt and pepper and combine (keep to one side until pasta is done).
Courgettes:
Chop lengthways then roughly into chunks, chop nuts and put in a hot dry pan until charred (3-4 mins).
Finely chop Strawberries and add to a bowl with juice of a lime, chilli, sprinkle of salt and the balsamic vinegar.
Add courgettes and nuts back to a pan with a minced clove of garlic, stir around for a minute then add the
strawberry mixture for a further minute or two. take off the heat.
Spinach:
Wilt a bunch of spinach in a frying pan.
Once it is cooked off (3/4 mins) drain the water then add some garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil.
To Serve:
Stir the avocado and wild garlic sauce into the pesto adding some of the pasta water.
Dish the linguine onto a bed of spinach, then add the courgettes to the top.
Add some parsley, black pepper, lemon/lime juice to taste, and a bit of parmesan/vegan alternative if you’re feeling
fancy!
