Wholewheat Spaghetti with Lemon, Rocket and Pistachios

It’s Martha Mondays day today and it was my pick this week.  So I chose this.

You know, at the beginning of a new month I get all my Martha Stewart Living magazines out and look through them.  I have six January issues and this came from the ‘Spa Cuisine’ section of the January 2007 issue.

Simple: wholewheat spaghetti, lemon, onion, rocket, pistachios and olive oil

I fancied cooking something more healthy and something that I could make when I get in from work.  This ticked both of those boxes.  We never eat wholewheat pasta at home but we actually liked it very much and couldn’t really tell the difference.

Now this is a strange recipe and I found that my food processor was a bit big to get the pistachios and lemon to finally chop, in the end I put the lemon and pistachio mix back into the food processor to give it another whirl whilst I added the olive oil.

The verdict?  We liked this.  Alot.  Mum wolfed hers down and I quickly followed.  I think this might be work in progress as I would like the pesto to be a bit runnier and I might put some parmesan on top next time.

I can’t wait to see what everyone else thought of it.  Did you make this?  What did you think?
