My good pal Linda inspired this dinner as something her family have for an easy night off meat. It still looks and tastes like pure comfort food, so you can fool unwilling kids into eating a rake of veg that they will hardly notice. A good tasty pesto, homemade or shop-bought, takes away any work, so you have a real one-pot wonder here. The quantities of vegetables are just guidelines.
Spaghetti or linguine of your choice
200g peas — defrosted fully, if frozen
