Review: I Sea Pasta Pesto

Serves: 4 | Prep Time: 20 mins | Cook Time: 20 mins

As many people are, we are absolute pasta lovers: it's tasty, quick to make and so versatile, but today we bring you something healthier and free from friendly from of pasta. I Sea Pasta is organic, gluten free and vegan friendly - can you even go wrong?

Seamore’s founder mistook seaweed for pasta, loved the experience and decided to fool the rest of the world. I sea pasta looks like tagliatelle but is 100% wild, handpicked seaweed from Connemara, Ireland.


We have actually reviewed one of their other products before, I Sea Bacon. Seamore is turning seaweed into an everyday food. They are turning the healthiest, most sustainable ingredient on the planet into tasty, convenient and affordable food.


I know some of you may be thinking that sounds weird or maybe even disgusting, but honestly the seaweed taste doesn't taste as strong as it smells when boiling it. It is definitely not overpowering to the rest of the dish, if like me, you like your pasta with a bit of a bite, this 'pasta' still has that and is much more healthier - it could never replace the real deal but it sure will be a great alternative to stay healthy and for anyone who is gluten free!




Ingredients:

100g I sea pasta (1 pack)
- 250g cherry tomatoes
- 30g basil
- 1 garlic clove
- Pepper and salt
- 75 dl extra virgin olive oil
- green pesto
Optional:
- 2 tbl toasted pine nuts
- 30g parmesan cheese

Instructions:

1. Soak I sea pasta in lukewarm water for 20 min.

2. Rinse I sea pasta in a colander and put it into boiling water (make the sure pasta is under water). Let it cook for 20 min.

3. Meanwhile, cook the cherry tomatoes in olive oil until they are soft.

4. Rinse the cooked I sea pasta and stir it through the pesto.

5. To garnish use the cherry tomatoes.
Also you could add a piece of cooked fish, meator extra vegetables. Yummy.
