  • 1 teaspoon crushed black pepper


  1. In a saucepan filled with water, cook the tagliatelle as per packet instructions and set aside.
  2. In a separate pan, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil and sauté the garlic and onion on medium heat for around 6 minutes.
  3. Now add the purple sprouting broccoli, season with salt and pepper and mix well.
  4. Let this cook for around 5 minutes, and then add the pesto sauce and tagliatelle.
  5. Mix well and cook for around 2 minutes and then serve hot.

Hi, I’m Binny – a writer, dreamer, serial wanderluster and travel addict. I am originally from Kenya but now live in London. I set up this blog to share my experiences eating out as well as travelling.

I love packing my bags and going off on adventures as one of the best things about travelling is the ability to just get lost in it. To set aside the maps and itineraries and just see where the road takes you, learning and evolving and living in the moment along the way.

It’s my goal to get swept off my feet as often as possible.
