Prawn Linguine with Kale Pesto
400 Calories Per Serve
Quinoa pasta is gluten free and contains more protein than regular wheat pasta. You can source quinoa pastas from health food shops or the health food section of most supermarkets.
50 grams of Quinoa Linguine
2 portions of Kale Pesto
Olive Oil Spray
Cook your pasta until al dente, using a colander drain and rinse in cool running water and set aside. Sear the prawns in a pan using olive oil for 2 -3 minutes on each side, and remove from the pan. In a deep saucepan heat a little olive oil and saute the rocket briefly, add the linguine, and mix in the pesto. Add the prawns and heat through. Add a splash more olive oil if desired. Season with ground sea salt, and a little extra freshly grated manchego if desired.

I make a rocket pesto so I am keen to give this one a go .. Haven’t seen quinoa pasta either and as we are now gluten free this is something to run off and get …. Thank you for the inspriation!
We get quinoa linguine, spaghetti and penne from our local health food store. But, they are amazing -as they have so much terrific stock. Maybe try a health food retailer online?
we have a health food shop so I will enquire … I am keen to try this … even down to buying quinoa flour and using it to make our own duck egg pasta … now there is an idea … brilliant thanx for the inspiration
brilliant! thank you!
Oh thank you
You can always make it with a bunch of english spinach instead? And still really good for you.
I agree with Gillian, delicious!
Thanks Mark. That made my day!
I love a classic with a twist! Kale Pesto….good idea
That is just so nice to hear. Thank you!
Tried this and cant say how awesome it was ….. I used a home grown heirloom russian red kale that wasn’t as green, but delightfully full flavoured.
