Pesto Pasta

388 calories     £0.92     20 minutes

Pasta is always a go to for me when it comes to dinner, I always ensure my cupboard is stocked with the stuff so I can make an easy meal any time. Pesto is a great alternative to tomato and dairy based pastas and is just as tasty and filling. Serves 1

All you need is

1 carrot

1 onion

15g salami

10g cheddar cheese

80g pasta

2 tbsp green pesto

Pinch salt and pepper

To make it just

Bring a pan of water to boil and place the pasta and leave to cook for 10-15 minutes. Chop the carrots and add after 8 minutes.

Finely chop the onion and chop salami into cubes and fry.

Once the pasta is done drain and add the fried ingredients to the pot, add the pesto, salt, pepper and half the cheese and stir in.

Sprinkle over the rest of the cheese once served.

The reviews are in

If you are ever in need of a quick and simple dinner keep your cupboard stocked with pasta and pesto and your fridge with vegetables. This could have been made without the salami and would have tasted just as good.
