The Prawn Pesto recipe is a make in advance recipe so is ready for any weekday supper over rice and pasta and is always a winner with the children. Add the healthy spinach and the children don’t even know. Prawn Pesto is such a simple and fast dish that you will return to it time after time. I have included prawns in my recipe but you can add what ever you fancy. Serve with Garlic Bread or Fresh Bread to mop up the sauce. The texture work well together and being able to serve 4 people in under 15 minutes means you have time to relax.
