  • 1 large Maris Piper potato (350g), peeled & cut into 1cm slices
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped

  • 1 large courgette, sliced thinly
  • 150g frozen peas
  • 5 medium British Lion eggs
  • 2 tbsp pesto

  1. Place the potato slices in a pan of boiling water and cook for 10 minutes.
