Vegan Orecchiette with Plant-Based Kale Pesto & Vegan Parmesan (ve.)

Orecchiette, literally ‘little ears’, are a perfect example of the difference that fresh production can make to pasta. Using only flour and water, the little shell shapes have a firm bite, but a soft interior, avoiding the sogginess often found in reboiled dry pasta.

Another delight is of course the variety of shapes inherent in hand-crafting. Orecchiette are known and loved in their rugged home region of Apulia for their ability to scoop up smaller elements of the sauce, such as this innovative vegan pesto with its star ingredient: beautiful British kale, as it gives a fantastic vivid green hue to our pesto. The sturdy pasta holds this sauce beautifully, so neither pasta nor our twist on pesto becomes a support act for the other.

We top with vegan Parmigiano, allowing you to enjoy this perfectly plant-based dish with pure peace of mind. 

INGREDIENTS (allergens in bold): Fresh Pasta (Durum Wheat Flour, Water), Kale, Lemon Juice, Lemon Zest, Italian Grated cheese, Garlic, Blanched Almonds, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Black Pepper, Salt

GARNISH INGREDIENTS: Vegan Italian Grated cheese
