In a separate bowl add about 300g of the peas that have been thawed out, with all of the basil…..the stems and all, a huge glug of olive oil, the green chilli and squeeze of lemon! Using a stick blender, blitz all the green goodness into a delicious pesto! Once it’s a smooth consitancy add the rest of your peas whole and a handful of grated Parmesan! I like to add the peas frozen so they don’t over cook in the oven. They take seconds to cook!
