Prep time

Cook time
3 mins
10 – 12 serves


  • 85g Community Co Pine Nuts
  • 85g Community Co Parmesan Cheese
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 75ml extra virgin olive oil
  • 85g kale
  • The juice of 1 lemon
  • Pasta to serve. We used Community Co Pasta Shells
  • You’ll also need a blender!

How to make it:

  1. Toast the pine nuts. To do this, all you have to do is place them in a dry pan (you don’t need oil) and toast on medium to low heat for 3 mins, stirring occasionally.
  2. Place them in a bowl to cool. Depending on the strength of your blender, you may need to chop the kale into smaller pieces. You can do that now.
  3. Once the pine nuts have cooled a little, place all ingredients in a blender and whizz until smooth.
  4. The kids can pour the sauce over cooked spaghetti
  5. Enjoy!
