Pesto pasta with broccoli and sundried tomatoes

Yes, lovely people, the title pretty much sums up this tasty little pasta dish we enjoyed recently.

The weather was dreary, and we had a hankering for carbs.

So pasta it was.

Simply – linguine – cooked until al dente – then thrown into a pan with steamed broccoli, basil pesto, sundried tomatoes and garlic – then allowed to heat through.

Topped with a good amount of parmesan cheese – and served alongside a garlic baguette – and our hankering for carbs was well and truly sated.

Yes I cant help but feel our tastebuds have been hibernating this Winter. Long gone are the salads and BBQs of summer. And in their place sit hearty stews, comforting pasta and firer curries.

Even the little Miss got in on the pasta action!

(Actually I think she preferred the garlic bread…..)

What about you? Have you got a favourite pasta combination?
