There are days when simple is essential. But so also is hot and tasty food to nourish the body after a long day at work.
In the cupboards – pasta, pesto sauce, cheese. Simple. And tasty. And filling.
Place your desired serving of dried pasta into a pan of lightly salted, boiling water. Follow instructions on the packet – most small pasta(like fusilli) takes approx 8 minutes to cook. The pasta should be soft or with a teeny bite to it(‘al dente’). Once cooked, drain the pasta and add straight back to the pan.
Dollop your serving of pesto sauce on top of the pasta – I usually add 2-3 tbsp – and stir it thoroughly into the pasta, so the pasta is coated. Pile into a dish, add a grinding or two of fresh black pepper, and a grating of your cheese of choice on top. I used parmesan. Extra mature Cheddar is good too.
