Sorry it’s been a while since my last post! Getting back into the New Year was harder than I expected!
Today we have a totally simple and incredibly easy comforting pasta that takes 20-30 minutes max!
Ingredients – serves 2
Pasta, approx 75g per person
For the pesto
50g pine nuts
60g pack basil x2
1 clove of garlic, grated
1 tbsp grated Parmesan (optional)
1 lemon, juice
4-5 tbsp olive oil
Optional additions: 1 onion, finely sliced, handful of Mushrooms, sliced
Pop a pan of water on the hob and bring to the boil. Cook the pasta to packet instructions.
Meanwhile, fry the onions and mushrooms in a little oil and salt and pepper until they are soft.
Place all the pesto ingredients in a food processor with a tablespoon or 2 of water and blend until smooth.
When the pasta is nicely cooked drain it and pop in a two bowls with the mushrooms and onions and a couple of great dollops of pesto. Enjoy!
Simple, comforting and totally yummy!
Love, A x
