Recipe: Creamy Spring Pasta

I made pasta with turnip tops a few weeks ago, but I didn't share the recipe yet. Turnip tops are the first fresh veggies of spring, so therefore I call the recipe spring pasta :) It is a very simple and low budget recipe, as the regular readers are used to by now :)

Creamy Spring Pasta: 
1 bunch of turnip tops
250gr pasta
200ml creme fraiche
1 glove of garlic
1tbsp green pesto
fresh basil leaves
some grated cheese

Cook the pasta and clean the turnip tops. Fry the garlic shortly in some oil and add the turnip tops, fry until the vegetables shrunk. Add the creme fraiche and the pesto and stir it through. When the pasta is done, drain and add the pasta in the sauce pan. Season with basil, salt and pepper if preferred. Grate some cheese on top before serving. Of course you can also replace the turnip tops with fresh spinach leaves.
