  1. Step 1

    Cook the pasta in a saucepan of boiling water following packet directions or until al dente, adding the beans and peas for the last 2 mins of cooking. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup (125ml) cooking liquid. Return pasta to the pan.

  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, place the mint, garlic, pistachios, pecorino and half the rocket in a food processor and process until finely chopped. With the motor running, gradually add oil in a thin, steady stream until combined. Season.

  3. Step 3

    Add the pesto to the pasta mixture with the salmon, lemon rind, lemon juice and remaining rocket. Season and toss to combine.

  4. Step 4

    Divide the pasta mixture among serving bowls. Sprinkle with the extra pecorino to serve.

Recipe tip

Smart swap:
If you don’t have any pecorino handy, use grated parmesan to add the same savoury hit to this dish.
