A delicious departure from regular pesto, this watercress, pea and lemon pesto pasta brings together flavors that all complement each other. This recipe is a wonderful make ahead, just make the pesto and boil up some pasta when you’re ready to eat. This dish is also a quick dinner idea. If you have the pesto pre-made, dinner can be on the table in the time it takes to boil the pasta.
