Now that I've shared my pesto recipe, it seems only fitting that I share a pasta dish that uses it. This is a quick and easy dish we put together after a long day of classes.
You will need:
1 cup uncooked penne pasta
1 Roma tomato OR 4-5 cherry tomatoes
2 tablespoons of pesto sauce
Cook penne in salted water. Drain water.
Chop Roma tomatoes into small, bite-sized pieces or cherry tomatoes in half. In the same pot you cooked the pasta in, place pasta and tomatoes. Cook over a medium-low heat for a few minutes, stirring occasionally. Add pesto and stir to coat pasta. Let simmer for a few minutes.
Serve with a little grated Parmesan cheese and glass of wine.
