I’ve been following the Slimming World plan on and off (a fair bit of off…) for years. I try to find some balance in life where I can follow the plan and fill up on lots of low fat, high veg meals but also enjoy some of my favourite things.
So far I’ve experimented with making Slimming World pasta sauces, Slimming World loaded potato skins and now syn free pesto. This makes the best Slimming World pesto pasta syn free pasta sauce (try saying that with a mouthful of spaghetti!).
This Slimming World pesto recipe is a real winner in our house. Now, let’s be honest, it’s not going to pass for ‘real’ pesto, but it’s a good imitation if you normally eat pesto like it’s going out of fashion (moi?).
It’s pokey enough to pack a real flavour punch (thanks raw garlic!) that somehow keeps me satisfied for much longer than any old bland supper. It’s super quick to make and keeps in the fridge for a few days too.
I made mine in my amazing, life changing (honestly this blender is), much loved Froothie. It carries out some kind of magic that whips the Quark into submission and leaves it silky smooth with no herby lumps. Just a creamy, light, fresh sauce.

Serve this syn free pasta sauce over hot steaming spaghetti and if you are following Slimming World, throw in some green beans, asparagus or spinach at the end of the cooking time to get your Superfree vegetables quota.
Top Tip for making the Slimming World Pesto Recipe! When using raw garlic, remove that little shoot section inside the middle of each clove. It stops that horrid burpy (sorry) feeling afterwards apparently.
Also, you could add your Healthy Extra Parmesan cheese to this but I don’t think it really needs it.
