The little ‘ears’ of orecchiette are great for catching the pesto and peas in swirling little mouthfuls. At this time of the year there are plenty of zucchini to hand and usually peas in the freezer. The herbs I change to what is available and sometimes I like to toss in beans, spinach, rocket or even kernels of corn. Click here for the pistachio pesto recipe

In this simple and elegant barbecue meal, lamb and eggplant are dressed with Greek flavours. The type of lamb you choose will affect cooking times so adjust accordingly. If you have pescatarians to cater for, keep the eggplant and lamb separate and you could always spoon some warm lentils, tossed with olive and lemon, over the plain eggplant to boost the protein.
You need to use good feta for this recipe. I prefer a firm sheep’s milk feta similar to the style made in Greece.
