Gavin's Orecchiette With Basil Kale Pesto & Ricotta (Vg)

This healthy twist on the classic pesto pasta is made out of fresh basil and kale and topped with Paesanella ricotta cheese and an extra sprinkle of toasted pepitas for crunch.

For this recipe, Gavin sautés kale with garlic. He then blends it with freshly picked basil leaves and mixes it through Orrechiette pasta. Finally, the dish is topped with Paesanella Ricotta, toasted pepitas, Grana Padano Parmesan, and a drizzle of olive oil.

The result is utterly delicious and makes the perfect lunch or quick dinner!

Enjoy it hot or cold.
