I am shamefully very behind in posting my dinner creations. I think it has something to do with that little thing called ‘life’ consuming a lot of my spare time
But rest assured there has been a lot of creating in the BBB kitchen recently. Lots of which I hope to share with you over the coming month.
Take this rather simple yet delightful walnut pesto pasta we indulged in a little while ago. And yes, I am acutely aware that it was only yesterday I was regaling non-pasta alternatives to traditionally pasta-laden dishes!
But bear with me…..
During the afternoon, I put together the pesto.
Quite simply – walnuts, garlic, basil, parmesan and olive oil. Blended until smooth.
Then when the little Miss went to bed for the evening, I got to work on the rest of the dish.
GF fettuccine, cooked until al dente with a cup of frozen peas thrown in for the last few minutes of cooking time.
Drained, then added to the walnut pesto, and heated until warm.
Finished with a sprinkling of shaved parmesan and a good amount of cracked pepper.
And our rather rich mid week meal was complete!
All in all – I think this meal took less than 15 minutes to put together. Just the type of meal one needs when time is short, but appetites are hearty!
What about you? Do you have a favourite pasta dish?
