Wholewheat Pasta, dry

360 g, linguine

Green Beans

220 g, trimmed and halved

Belazu Beldi Olive Black Tapenade

60 g

Cherry Tomatoes

300 g, halved


1 zest(s) of 1

Lemon Juice, Fresh

2 tablespoon(s)

Basil, fresh

10 g, finely chopped, plus extra to serve


  1. Cover a large pan of salted water and bring to the boil. Add the pasta and cook for 5 minutes, then the green beans and cook for a further 3 minutes or until the pasta is al dente and the beans are tender. Turn off the heat and drain the pasta and beans, reserving a little of the pasta water. Return the pasta and beans to the pan.
  2. Stir in the tapenade, adding a little of the reserved pasta water to make a light sauce. Mix in the cherry tomatoes, lemon zest and juice, and chopped basil. Season well with freshly ground black pepper, then divide the pasta between 4 serving bowls. Garnish with the basil leaves and serve.


If you can’t find wholewheat linguine, wholewheat spaghetti will work just as well
