A delicious and healthy vegetarian meal which makes good use of store-cupboard ingredients and some eggs. Can be varied by using vegetables of your choice.


  • 300g/10oz spaghetti
  • 225g/8oz broccoli florets
  • 100g/4oz frozen peas
  • 6 large British Lion eggs
  • 60ml/4tbsp pesto sauce
  • 60ml/4tbsp toasted pinenuts
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • grated Parmesan to serve (optional)


  1. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. Add the spaghetti and cook for 5 mins.
  2. Meanwhile place the eggs in a medium pan, cover with cold water and slowly bring to the boil. Boil for 7 mins.
  3. Add the broccoli and peas to the spaghetti pan, return to the boil and cook for a further 5 mins or until the spaghetti and vegetables are just tender or ‘al dente’.
  4. Drain in a colander and return to the pan.
  5. Remove the eggs from the heat, drain and rinse in cold water. Tap the shells all over, then peel away and discard. Roughly chop the hard boiled eggs.
  6. Stir the pesto into the spaghetti and vegetables, stir through the eggs and pine nuts. Season to taste. Serve straight away with a sprinkling of Parmesan if liked.

#eggsmyway #eggs #brunchThe best place to store your eggs is in the fridge. Eggs should be kept at a constant temperature below 20°C, so to avoid temperature fluctuations in a domestic kitchen store them in their box in the fridge. But they are not kept in the fridge in the supermarket we hear you cry! Most modern supermarkets are kept below 20°C so refrigeration isn’t necessary. Keeping your eggs in the fridge at home ensures optimum freshness and food safety which is eggcellent news for any #egghead #tofridgeornottofridge #eggmyths #facts #egghacks #britishlioneggs #factfriday
