How to make wild garlic pasta sauce in 3 minutes

Posted on April 30th, 2017

Back in March I shared a clever way to keep potted herbs looking stylish on the window ledge, this month I’m sharing the easiest recipe I can think of from the clumps of wild garlic now flowering all over our farm. This wild garlic pasta sauce requires no cooking, is as versatile as any expensive garlic sauce in a tube or jar that you can buy from the supermarket and yet can be made from scratch for next to nothing in just 3 minutes; that’s a lot quicker than a trip to the supermarket when you live in rural Cornwall! What’s more it is packed with nature’s goodness and couldn’t be fresher, just the sort of instant meal you need when added to fresh pasta after a day at the beach or working here on the farm.
