Pasta Pesto

This is a dish I make all the time. It's easy, quick and delicious!

Homemade pasta and pesto

You could make this with homemade pasta, although I usually buy the supermarket spaghetti because I always make this after work and I don't feel like making my own pasta. If you want to though,you can find the recipe over here..

Pesto is something I do always make myself, take a look over here for the recipe.

Qick and easy

Like I said, I make this during the week after work. It's just boiling the pasta and whipping up the saucce.

Vegetarian, meat of fish

You can adjust this dish so it's vegetarian but you can also add meat. I really like bacon bits, the saltyness gives it an extra punch. You can also use salmon. If you keep it vegetarian, keep in mind to add some extra salt for optimal flavour.
