Place a pan on a medium heat and cook the Parma ham for a few minutes each side until it gets crispy then leave to the side.

Mash the peas with the pesto, a pinch of salt and spring onions and spread over the toast. Top with the Parma ham and enjoy.

    Do the peas need cooking/defrosting first or does the mashing/mixing/spreading on toast mean they defrost nicely anyway?

    Thank you

      They are more crushed that mashed, they will still be quite chunky, but if you wanted them a little less frozen then just run them under some warm water for a minute or two. xx
