Pea and Pesto Pasta with Roasted Brussel Sprouts

This is another pasta sauce I made as a quick with what I had in my fridge. It was so fresh with the added benefit of hidden greens in the sauce. I served with caramelised roasted brussel sprouts, but this will also work with other roasted veggies such as courgette and peppers.
