Packed with Broccoli, Spinach, Basil and Tomatoes, this easy vegan pasta dish is flavoured with garlic, spiced with chillies and has a freshness from being finished with Lemon. The level of olive oil can be adjusted to desired taste but  note that it is the only fat in the dish and lends to the consistency of the sauce and the peppery taste.
