  1. Put the Wicked Kitchen pink beetroot pesto in a saucepan with 60ml water. Bring to the boil, remove from the heat and stir in instant mash; season. Mix well; when you have a dense mash, stir in the plain flour. Form into a dough with your hands, then roll it out to a rough square, 1.5cm thick. Cut 6 vertical strips and 5 horizontal ones to create 30 rectangles, then press with a fork to make indentations.
  2. Working in batches, cook the gnocchi in a pan of simmering water for 2-3 mins until they float to the surface. Use a slotted spoon to transfer to a plate; drizzle with a little olive oil and gently toss with the chopped Parsley.
  3. Meanwhile, boil a pack Redmere Farms green beans for 3 mins; drain. Serve with the gnocchi, drizzled with ½ tbsp olive oil and a twist of black pepper.
